South Korea Sends More Non-Lethal Aid to Ukraine

South Korea plans to contribute 2 billion won ($1.6 million) in non-lethal military aid to Ukraine in response to Russia’s special military campaign.

The aid would include bulletproof jackets, helmets, medicines, and dry food, according to Yonhap News Agency, adding that the deliveries are likely to begin next week, with the products being transported to Europe using civil flights.

Defense Minister Suh Wook reiterated the viewpoint that South Korea insisted that delivering weapons to Ukraine has “limits”, in response to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s request for weapons.

The South Korean government previously delivered $10 million in help to Kyiv in March, which included helmets, tents, blankets, medicines, and 40 tonnes of medical humanitarian material. 

The South Korean government intends to provide another $30 million to Ukraine in the future.
