The head of the Defence Force says New Zealand's contribution to Ukraine is being appreciated.

The Government is committing another $4.5 million towards non-lethal military aid.

Ukrainians in New Zealand have criticised the Government for not providing more support, including lethal aid.

But Air Marshal Kevin Short told Mike Hosking Ukraine and our western allies appreciate the professional support New Zealand is providing.

“Our contribution has been discussed at many of the meetings I’ve been to, so it’s been a good response and I think our people are doing a great job.”
