South Korea: South Korea signs $130 million aid package with Ukrainian minister

SEOUL: South Korea on Wednesday signed an agreement with Ukraine over its plan to provide $130 million in financial assistance, a day after the war-affected country’s visiting first lady requested military assistance.
South Korea’s finance ministry said the minister Choo Kyung-ho and Ukraine’s Economy Minister Yulia Svyrydenko, in Seoul to attend a conference, signed the deal on the package, which will consist of aid grants and loans.
South Korea, a major producer of artillery shells, said it does not supply lethal weapons to Ukraine, citing its relationship with Russia.
But Yoon said in an interview with Reuters last month that his government might not “insist only on humanitarian or financial support” if civilians in Ukraine came under large-scale attack or because of a “situation that the international community does not can tolerate”.
