Belgium plans to provide Ukraine with the largest package of defense aid since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the russian federation to Ukraine in February 2022, as reported by the L'Echo publication, it is about the amount of 90 million euros.
The most important thing in this defense package is the transfer of AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles (these missiles can be used by the NASAMS air defense system previously transferred to Ukraine by the United States of America), as well as Mistral air defense systems launchers. However, Belgium will not be able to transfer missiles to the Mistral ADS, because it does not have its own reserves, and therefore Norway and France should help Ukraine with the missiles.
