He also said that the Croatian authorities are considering the transfer of Mi-8 helicopters to Kyiv.
“The Croatian government has been supporting Ukraine financially, technically and materially since the beginning, providing political support. And one of the measures of such political support is a decision that is now in the process of consideration by our government . One of the The points of this decision are helicopters, and I hope that in the near future we will be able to move to Ukraine,” he said.
Japan will provide Ukraine with $4.5 million worth of demining equipment and Ukrainian sappers will be trained in the country.
