Store said that half of the aid will be used for military needs, and the rest will be humanitarian aid, and the ratio will be adjusted in the next few years according to the situation. Store said that this is the largest foreign aid program in Norway's history.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky praised the plan as unprecedented and will make great contributions to Ukraine.
