ZAGREB (Croatia), February 28 (SeeNews) - Croatian prime minister Andrej Plenkovic said the government will take a decision on Monday to support Ukraine's defence capabilities with 124 million kuna ($18 million/16 million euro) in aid, as the Russian invasion of Ukraine entered into its fifth day.

The aid concerns mostly protection equipment but also infantry weapons, Plenkovic told a cabinet meeting on the situation in Ukraine on Monday, without elaborating.

A video recoding of the meeting is published on internet portal www.index.hr. According to the schedule of the meeting, the issue of aid is 'confidential' and it will be voted on during the closed part of the meeting.

The cabinet meeting decided to close the Croatian airspace to Russian aircraft.

Croatia will join a EU decision to exclude some Russian banks from the SWIFT payment information system, Plenkovic said.
