Germany will provide Ukraine with 2000 anti-tank grenade launchers

Germany’s Defense Ministry wants to supply Ukraine with 2,000 anti-tank grenade launchers from Bundeswehr stocks. According to Deutsche Presse-Agentur, Minister Christine Lambrecht (56, SPD) submitted the corresponding request to the Federal Security Council on Wednesday.

Additional 1700 anti-aircraft weapons from Germany for Ukraine

In addition, the German government will provide Ukraine with an additional 1,700 anti-aircraft weapons of the Strela type. The weapons are to be delivered immediately. According to German BILD, the Federal Security Council agreed to this at a secret meeting on Tuesday. Of the original 2,700 Strela systems, 500 have already been handed over to Ukraine. Another 500 and the remaining 1,700 are said to be sent on their way immediately.

Ukraine has already received 1,000 anti-tank missiles from Germany

The Ukrainian armed forces have also already received 1,000 anti-tank missiles and 500 “Stinger” surface-to-air missiles from the Bundeswehr stockpile. However, the CDU/CSU accused the coalition government of not helping Ukraine enough. “The Ukrainians want to resist and they are resisting. We should not leave them alone.” – CDU European politician Gunther Krichbaum (57) warned.

In fact, other countries are supplying far more weapons than Germany. For example, on Wednesday Sweden announced that it will deliver 5,000 anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.
