The Government is being told it could give more help to Ukraine if it wanted to. 

New Zealand is contributing another $5 million towards fuel supplies, rations and medical kits.  

The Defence Force is offering just over a thousand body armour plates, and around 500 each of helmets and camouflage vests. 

Democracy Project international analyst, Geoffrey Miller, told Mike Hosking we spent hundreds of millions in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

He wonders why we're not sending $50 or $100 million to European Union countries, who are taking in refugees.
