Australia sends $70million worth of missiles and bullets to Ukraine amid Russian invasion

Australia will deliver $70 million in defence equipment to Ukraine, the majority of which will be deadly aid such as missiles and ammunition to help the country fend against Russia’s invasion.

The news: A further $35 million will be delivered to offer shelter, food, and water to hundreds of thousands of women and children who have fled the warzone.

  • Prime Minister Scott Morrison claimed supplying ‘anti-armour missiles’ to repel Russian tanks was a ‘big priority’ during a press conference following a lengthy cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning.
  • Ukrainian soldiers equipped with anti-tank weapons have so far been successful in repelling attacks and slowing Russia’s advance towards the capital Kyiv, however huge Russian columns are on the way.
  • Australia will directly send some weapons and also transfer money to NATO partners for them to buy arms for delivery to Ukraine, Morrison revealed.
  • Previous deliveries have arrived by air but with Ukrainian airspace now contested, US officials said they would look for ‘additional avenues to do that’.  

What he said: Morrison did not specify which weapons will be dispatched.

  • “I’m not going to get into the details because I’m not planning on informing the Russian government about what’s heading their way, but I can guarantee them it’s coming your way,” he continued.
  • Germany stated on Saturday that it would provide Ukraine with 1,000 anti-tank missiles and 500 Stinger surface-to-air missiles from its military stockpiles.
  • US President Joe Biden approved the shipment of $350 million worth of equipment, including Javelin anti-tank weaponry, on Sunday. The United Kingdom has already provided 2,000 anti-tank missile systems to the region.
