The Australian government announced today that it will send more unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to Ukraine to help in the war, on the one-year anniversary of Russia’s military invasion, while also announcing new targeted economic sanctions on weight of 90 individuals and 40 legal entities.

New targets include Russian ministers who hold portfolios such as energy and industry, as well as key players in the defense industry, including the Kalashnikov rifle maker, Tupolev airline, submarine maker and others.

“We continue to stand by Ukraine,” Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said in a press release released by his services. The UAVs, he continued, offer “intelligence-gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities to the Ukrainian armed forces.”

He did not specify either how many such systems would be sent, the models, or whether they would be armed.

For her part, Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong said she would urge China — which the U.S. and other Western countries accuse of planning to provide material support to Russia, despite Beijing’s denials — to make moves to de-escalate the war.

Australia, which is among the non-NATO countries with the largest contribution to Western support for the Ukrainian military, supplies weapons, ammunition and other military equipment and has banned exports of aluminum and other minerals to Russia.

Since war broke out on 24 February 2022, Canberra has provided half a billion Australian dollars (about €471 million) worth of aid to Ukraine. It also sent its military to Britain to take part in the training of Ukrainians, while it imposed sanctions on over 1,000 Russian individuals and legal entities.
