The Swedish government will hand over a new batch of military aid to Ukraine amid the Russia-Ukraine war, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde announced this on Twitter, APA reports.

"Sweden will send anti-ship missiles, anti-tank weapons and 12.7 mm rifles including ammunition to Ukraine. This 4th support package also includes financial contribution to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Total amount includes more than 95 million euros," the Swedish FM wrote.

The Swedish army is armed with RBS 17 anti-ship missiles (Robotsystem 17), which Ukraine is likely to receive.

The RBS-17 is a Swedish variation of the AGM-114 Hellfire missile. The modification was carried out by Bofors.

It has been adapted for Anti-ship usage and can be launched from Naval vessels or a ground firing post. The AGM-114 Hellfire missile was designed to defeat armoured vehicles at long ranges.

It should be noted that Sweden is also armed with more powerful RBS-15 anti-ship land-based systems.
