It will take three to four years to produce all ten complexes requested by Ukraine. Ukrainian soldiers will have to undergo appropriate training in Germany.

It should be recalled that on April 28, the Bundestag approved the supply of heavy weapons to Ukraine. On May 9, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Russia's aggression leaves Germany no choice but to supply weapons to Ukraine.

In the coming days, Ukrainian artillerymen will be trained to handle PzH 2000 tank howitzers, which Germany and the Netherlands plan to deliver to Kyiv.
