In the publication in which the minister appears with the Ukrainian ambassador to Portugal, Inna Ohnivets, in a photograph, it can be read that “Portugal's support for the Ukrainian resistance against Russian aggression is reaffirmed”.

“In this context, another 99 tons of military and medical material will be sent soon”, she emphasizes.

Last Wednesday, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, João Gomes Cravinho, had said, upon arrival at a NATO meeting in Brussels, that Portugal had already sent between 60 and 70 tons of war material to Ukraine and would send more “in a near future".

“Portugal has been supporting Ukraine. It has already sent more than 60, 70 tons of war material to Ukraine and will send more in the near future”, he said, confirming that the material to be sent will soon be of the same type, as “it is the material that Portugal has to be able to place in the hands of the Ukrainians”.
