Military aid to Ukraine – the latest news

As UNIAN wrote, today it became known that Germany delivered to Ukraine the first batch of newly produced projectiles for Gepard anti-aircraft self-propelled artillery installations. So far, there have been problems with these ammunitions, because they are produced by neutral Switzerland. This country refused to supply its weapons to Ukraine because of its reluctance to violate its neutrality.

In addition, we reported that next week the White House will announce a new military aid package for Ukraine, which for the first time will include the supply of shells with depleted uranium. The exact value of the package is not yet known, but it is estimated to be between $240 and $375 million.
