KYIV. May 5 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal discussed with Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Sweden Magdalena Andersson financial and defense support to Ukraine.

"During a working visit to Warsaw on May 5, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal met with Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Sweden Magdalena Andersson. The parties discussed issues of financial and defense support for Ukraine," the government’s press service said in a statement.
