Germany's assistance to Ukraine

Since the beginning of the full-scale war, Germany has provided Ukraine with the largest amount of military assistance among all European countries.

In particular, Berlin has supplied Ukrainian defenders with Patriot batteries, Leopard 2 tanks, PzH 2000 self-propelled artillery units, and other types of weaponry.

Germany last announced a new package of military assistance to Ukraine in March. At that time, it also included weapons worth 500 million euros.
