Germany's assistance to Ukraine

Germany has been providing military assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale war. In particular, Ukrainian soldiers are receiving German armored vehicles, including Leopard 2 tanks and Marder infantry fighting vehicles.

On March 24, Germany handed over machine guns, engineering vehicles, and anti-drone systems to Ukraine.

Already in April, the country sent another military aid package to Ukraine, which included trucks, reconnaissance drones, and ammunition.

Later, the German Ministry of Defense ordered 20 Marder infantry fighting vehicles for Ukraine from Rheinmetall. The infantry fighting vehicles are likely to be delivered to the country by the end of July.

Also in June, Germany announced its intention to provide Ukraine with EUR 381 million in humanitarian aid.

On July 13, Germany handed over Gepard anti-aircraft guns and fire control stations for IRIS-T to Ukraine.
