Portugal to provide military assistance to Ukraine


The Portuguese Defense Ministry has announced that it will provide Ukraine with military equipment to help fight Russian occupiers.


That’s according to the ministry’s Twitter account, Ukrinform reports.


“At the request of the Ukrainian authorities, Portugal will provide military equipment such as vests, helmets, night vision goggles, grenades and ammunition of various calibers, portable radios, analog repeaters and G3 automatic rifles,” the statement said.


Ukrinform reported earlier that the head of the aggressor country, Vladimir Putin, announced the beginning of a special military operation in Donbas. At about 04:00, Russia launched air strikes on Ukraine and started the war.


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that martial law was being imposed across Ukraine. Early on February 24, the Verkhovna Rada approved Zelensky’s decree on the imposition of martial law throughout Ukraine.
