NATO members began collecting winter uniforms for Ukrainian soldiers – Spiegel

Ukraine sent a request to NATO with a request to provide winter clothing and winter tents for 200,000 armed forces – in a few weeks, it was already possible to close half of the request.

It is reported Spiegel.

At the end of July, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, wrote a letter to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in which he called for the urgent delivery of winter clothing and winter tents for the armed forces. In particular, we are talking about warm uniforms and winter shoes.

«Within weeks of the request, the US, Canada, Sweden and Finland had already pledged supplies. According to the first reports, a good 50 percent of the needs mentioned by Ukraine can be covered“, NATO told journalists.

Germany also plans to join the process. However, certain difficulties can already be noted, since stocks of winter equipment in most countries are mostly reserved for national consumption.

“Regarding winter equipment, such as clothing, materials for field camps and food, Germany can make an important contribution to support the defense of Ukraine in the coming winter”– said German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht.

NATO offered its members to replace the winter material that was transferred from the camps. The Alliance has at its disposal a trust fund of about 40 million dollars for this purpose.

Earlier, Kuleba named the three “biggest” priorities of Ukraine in terms of weapons.
