(Reuters) – Norway on Friday pledged 1 billion euros ($1.04 billion) to help Ukraine defend itself, support those in need and rebuild after a Russian invasion.

Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gal Stoll told a news conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv that Norway wanted to express its solidarity with Ukraine’s fight for survival.

“What I’m here to say is that the fight in Ukraine is not just for Ukraine. It’s about some basic principles of the world we’re going to give to our children. It’s about the security of Europe, it’s about the fate of your neighbors, ” He says.

“We will commit 1 billion euros to support your country and people for the rest of 2022 and 2023,” he continued. “This war violates international law. … You have the right to defend yourself, we have The right to help you defend yourself.”

Asked if Norway would be willing to increase gas supplies to Europe, Stoll said Norway has “maximised” gas production, but it will do what it can to supply gas.

Zelensky said pressure on Russia needs to continue so the war can end.

He said Russia used Soviet-era Kh-22 missiles, designed to hit aircraft carriers or other large objects, to attack a modest nine-story building — referring to an apartment near Odessa early Friday morning The attack on the building. At least 16 people were killed, Ukrainian officials said.

Russia denies targeting civilians. Asked on Friday whether Russia had attacked the apartment complex in the resort Serhiivka, a Kremlin spokesman said: “I would like to remind you of the president’s words that the Russian armed forces do not cooperate with civilian targets.”
