"We are at a critical stage of the war, and we must guarantee that Ukraine has everything it needs to continue its fight," Mette Frederiksen said.

"This is why we are working with partners and allies for long-term security for Ukraine," the Danish PM added.

President Zelenskyy thanked Denmark for its participation in the rebuilding of Mykolaiv Oblast and the new aid package. He also had bilateral talks with Mette Frederiksen.
