Australia to send military equipment to Ukraine to help defend against Russian invasion

Australia will donate military equipment and coal to the Ukrainian effort to defend its country from invasion while placing additional sanctions on Russia.

Following discussions between Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Defence Minister Peter Dutton, and their Ukrainian counterparts, an additional $21 million worth of Australian Defence Force stock will seek to meet priority requests from Ukraine, the government announced on Sunday morning.

It comes after a new poll of voters across four target WA electorates that revealed strong support for Australia doing more to help war-torn Ukraine.

The West Australian polling in the target electorates of Swan, Pearce, Hasluck and Tangney revealed 49 per cent of respondents said Australia should do more.

The highest proportion was in Hasluck and Pearce with 50 and 49 per cent respectively. A total of 48 per cent of voters wanted more action for Ukraine in Tangney and 47 per cent in Swan.
