STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden will provide Ukraine with more economic aid and military equipment, the Nordic country's defence and finance ministers said on Thursday.

Finance Minister Mikael Damberg and Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist told a news conference the military equipment would include anti-ship missiles, rifles and more anti-tank weapons.

Sweden in February announced it would send military materiel including 5,000 anti-tank weapons, helmets and body armour to Ukraine, and in March announced it would send another 5,000 anti-tank weapons.
