  • 77 MULTI 1A1 cargo vehicles;
  • medical equipment;

Germany's assistance to Ukraine

Germany has been one of Ukraine's main allies since the start of the full-scale Russian invasion.

On January 31, Germany delivered a new package of military assistance to Ukraine, which included missiles for air defense, all-terrain vehicles, and armored personnel carriers.

In addition, the German Minister of Health, Karl Lauterbach, assured Ukraine of further assistance and cooperation in healthcare.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Ukraine might soon face a serious shortage of weapons and ammunition.
