Danish PM says citizen volunteers can join Ukraine fight


Zelensky had previously called on foreigners with combat experience to help.

Denmark will let its nationals join international brigades forming to fight in Ukraine against Russian forces, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said Sunday.

“It’s a choice that anyone can make. This goes for all Ukrainians who live here, but also for others who think they can contribute directly to the conflict,” she said in a press conference Sunday.

“There is nothing at first sight that would legally prevent someone from going to Ukraine to participate in the conflict, on the Ukrainian side,” she added.

Earlier Sunday, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky urged foreigners to head to Ukrainian embassies worldwide to sign up for an “international brigade” of volunteers to help fight invading Russian forces.

He had previously called on foreigners with combat experience to come to help defend his country.

Danish PM Frederiksen earlier joined 10,000 people in front of the Russian embassy in Copenhagen to condemn the invasion.

“It is all of you and all of Europe who are threatened by Russia”, she told the crowd.

“We cry with you”, she said, addressing Ukrainians.
