Croatia plans to send 14 helicopters to Ukraine, a local newspaper reported.
The Jutarnji List daily said that preparations have begun for the donation of the helicopters from the Croatian Armed Forces.
The country will send 12 MI-8 MTV-1 and 2 MI-8T helicopters.
The helicopters underwent the necessary maintenance in the hangars and will be ready within 10 days.
They are expected to be delivered first to Poland and then to Ukraine.
The Croatian government has kept all military support to Ukraine secret. Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic did announce in November that 14 helicopters would be sent to Ukraine but declined to provide further details.
President Zoran Milanovic, known for his opposing view on sending military aid to Ukraine, reacted by saying: “I don’t care.”
