Germany aims to double assistance to Ukraine

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius stated the country intended to double its military aid to Ukraine in 2024. Instead of the previously budgeted 4 billion euros, the plan was to spend 8 billion euros for that purpose.

Later, journalists familiarized themselves with the draft federal budget for 2024, which includes doubling military aid to Ukraine to 8 billion euros.

According to subsequent reports by Reuters, the ruling coalition in Germany is attempting to fill a significant gap in the budget. This delay has resulted in the suspension of the 8 billion euro defense aid earmarked for Ukraine next year.
