Sweden, a member of the European Union but not a member of NATO and always in a neutral position in global conflicts, will send 5,000 anti-tank guns, 5,000 military helmets, 5,000 protective suits and 135,000 ration packages for military members on the ground, plus 50 million in funds USD for the Ukrainian military.
