Estonia, Norway and the Netherlands have reached an agreement to supply a field hospital to Ukraine in order to improve medical care for the Armed Forces in Kiev. This was communicated by the Ministry of Defense of Tallinn. The field hospital will be provided by the Estonian Armed Forces, while Norway and the Netherlands will participate in the operation by providing financial support.
“For nine months, the people and the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been showing exceptional courage in facing Russian aggression to preserve the integrity of their Motherland,” Estonian Defense Minister Hanno Pevkur said. “We are convinced of the importance of our support and our goal remains unchanged: Ukraine must win the war and Russia must lose it”.
The importance of supporting Ukraine at a time made critical by the destruction of civilian infrastructure and the arrival of winter was also underlined by Dutch defense ministers Kajsa Ollongren and Norwegian Arild Gram. “I am satisfied – said Gram – that Norway is helping to donate the third Estonian field hospital. It is of great importance that Western nations support Ukraine by coordinating”.
In addition to the field hospital, the agreement signed by Estonia, Norway and the Netherlands provides for the sending of articulated lorries, containers, medical supplies and modules for storage and accommodation of personnel for a total value of 7.8 million of Euro.
