The Swiss government has again blocked a supply of war equipment to Ukraine. Bern vetoed a Danish request to supply Swiss-made armored cars to the Eastern European country.

Denmark had wanted to send about twenty Piranha III armored vehicles, according to the Swiss public broadcaster SRF. However, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) rejected the request. As a reason for the refusal, the body cited the Swiss policy of neutrality, which provides for a ban on the supply of weapons to conflict areas.

In april, Switzerland also blocked the re-export of anti-aircraft ammunition for weapons systems that Germany sent to Ukraine. Polish requests to send Swiss weapons to the neighboring country were also rejected by Bern.

Neutral Switzerland requires countries that buy Swiss-made weapons to ask permission in case they want to resell them to other countries.
