50,000 new high-quality first aid kits have already arrived at the Ministry of Defense warehouses. They will soon be transferred to the military, according to Deputy Minister of Defense Nataliia Kalmykova.

"Today, I checked the quality and contents of the first aid kits that have already arrived at the warehouses under the contract with the government of Germany, and I am satisfied. We already have 50,000 kits and a contract has been signed for a total of 500,000 kits. Each of them will be additionally equipped with a tourniquet and an occlusive dressing," Kalmykova said.

She also announced that new contracts are currently being prepared that will fully meet the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"We need to move away from the practice of volunteers bringing first aid kits to the front. All supplies should be provided by the state. This year, we will resolve this issue," the deputy minister emphasized.

Military aid from Germany to Ukraine

With the start of full-scale war, Germany has become one of the countries actively supporting Ukraine with military, political, and financial assistance.

In January, Germany delivered a new package of military aid to Ukraine, including shells, drones, and armored vehicles.

In mid-February, Germany allocated a package to Ukraine, including howitzers, anti-aircraft guns, and missiles for air defense systems.

In 2024, Berlin is ready to double military aid to Ukraine to 8 billion euros.
