Spain to Send Military Aid Pack to Ukraine, Including Leopard Tanks

Spain is preparing a new aid package for Ukraine, the preparation of which may be completed by June 30.

This was reported by El Pais.

Sources from the publication say that the aid package will include:

  • large-caliber artillery ammunition,

  • light and heavy machine guns,

  • armored wheeled logistics vehicles,

  • infantry fighting vehicles,

  • anti-tank weapons and shells for field artillery,

  • the first 10 combat tanks from a batch of 19 refurbished Leopard 2 A4 tanks.

Additionally, Spanish companies will supply anti-aircraft observation systems and remote weapon stations for protection against drones.

According to sources, Spanish military aid to Ukraine is most likely to be channeled through NATO. At the summit scheduled for July 9-11 in Washington on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the North Atlantic Alliance, “more effective mechanisms” for directing future military aid to Ukraine will be approved.

Sources from the publication state that the idea is for NATO itself to coordinate supplies from different countries, replacing the so-called “Rammstein” Contact Group on Ukraine.
