The Danish government plans to sell Ukraine three minesweepers. The press office of Ukraine's defense ministry reported this on Friday morning.

'Most likely, the report mentions a kind of minesweepers, based on the modernized project of Standard Flex 300 vessels, the Standard Flex 300 MCM. Fourteen ships of this particular kind were produced - Havkatten (P552), Laxen (P553), Makrelen (P554) and Støren(P555), and they all were decommissioned from the Danish Royal Navy in 2010-2012', the message says.

The ships were built in the 1980s-1990s; they were supposed to replace the obsolete boats in the Danish Navy.

Earlier, Lithuania and Portugal purchased similar vessels from Denmark.
