Assistance to Ukraine from France

France has been one of Ukraine's key allies since the onset of the full-scale Russian invasion, providing diverse assistance from the early days of the war.

In particular, our military has already received from France light tanks, self-propelled artillery units, long-range missiles, anti-aircraft defense systems, and more.

It has also recently been reported that Ukraine and France are finalizing work on a bilateral document guaranteeing security for our country.

On February 5, French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal also stated that Paris intends not only to increase funding for assistance to Ukraine but also to expand the list of provided weaponry. The head of the French government reminded that his country is supplying Ukraine with state-of-the-art weaponry.
