Germany has handed over a new batch of military aid to Ukraine, which includes unmanned surface vessels, bridge-laying tanks and border protection vehicles.
That's according to a statement posted on the website of the German government, Ukrinform reports.
The equipment delivered to Ukraine over the past few days includes three BEAVER bridge-laying tanks, eight unmanned surface vessels (two were transferred to Ukraine earlier), 12 border protection vehicles (65 of them have already been provided in total), 4,000 sleeping bags (in addition to the 10,000 delivered earlier), spare parts for Mi-24 helicopters, and 30 ambulances.
"[The list] includes deliveries from the Federal Armed Forces, as well as supplies from German industry financed from the Federal Government's funds for so-called security capacity building," the statement said.
In addition, the decision was made to transfer seven more Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns (three of them were transferred in August) and 100,000 first aid kits.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who is in Berlin on December 1, thanked Germany for being one of the main suppliers of military aid to Ukraine, including modern equipment. At the same time, he said the task was not to expand the list of weapons, but to ensure uninterrupted and effective use of the already provided equipment.
