Twenty countries announced new security assistance packages and agreed to send more advanced weapons to Ukraine, including a harpoon launcher and missiles to protect its coast, Qazet.az reports according to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

Among the countries that announced new packages are Italy, Denmark, Greece, Norway and Poland.

"We’ve gained a sharper, shared sense of Ukraine’s priority requirements and the situation on the battlefield,” Austin told reporters.

"Many countries are donating critically needed artillery ammunition, coastal defence systems and tanks and other armoured vehicles. Others came forward with new commitments for training.”

Denmark agreed to provide a harpoon launcher and missiles to “help Ukraine defend its coast” and the Czech Republic also agreed to send “substantial support” to Kyiv including “a recent donation of attack helicopters, tanks and rocket systems,” he added.
