As part of military assistance, the German government intends to transfer to Ukraine 20 70-mm rocket launchers, 2 thousand rockets for them, 30 MG-3 machine guns and more than 1.5 thousand shells for 155-mm artillery, reports RBC.

In addition, the German authorities promised to increase the number of Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns (ZSU) transferred to Kyiv from 12 to 15, and M113 armored personnel carriers from 33 to 44 pieces. Ukraine will also receive 60,200 40mm rounds of ammunition, 12 armored recovery vehicles and 255 Vulcano high-precision artillery shells from Germany.

It should be noted that on August 19 it became known that the White House is considering the possibility of transferring new types of weapons and military equipment to Kyiv with the expectation of turning the tide of hostilities in eastern and southern Ukraine in its favor. This was stated by a senior representative of the Pentagon at an online briefing for journalists.

She did not specify what types of weapons were in question, but considered that they would allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine “to operate successfully in terms of changing the battlefield not only in the east, but also in the south.”

Recall also that earlier Ukraine received from the UK a new batch of multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) M270 MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System). The MLRS uses ammunition similar to the rockets for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).

Prior to this, Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultkvist did not rule out that the country would produce weapons specifically for Ukraine. According to SVT, he stated this at a conference with the participation of heads of defense departments of 17 countries, which was held in Denmark.

Hultquist clarified that, first of all, we are talking about artillery systems, and in addition to Sweden, Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic can also participate in their release.

We add that on February 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees recognizing the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), and on February 24 he made an emergency appeal to the Russians and announced a special military operation in Donbass. He, in particular, stated that “circumstances require decisive action from Russia”, and stressed that “Russia will not allow the appearance of nuclear weapons in Ukraine.” The goals of the special operation were called “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine.
