New Zealand is deploying 30 more troops to Europe to help train Ukrainian fighters.  

They won't actually go into Ukraine, instead, the Ukrainians and Kiwis will get together in the UK.  

It comes after 50 defence personnel were deployed for two months in April and we sent $16m to buy military equipment for Ukraine.  

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Grant Robertson joined Heather du Plessis-Allan.
