Germany and France announced on Monday new arms deliveries to Ukraine in the context of the war with Russia.
Berlin should thus deliver nearly 700 million euros of additional weapons to Ukraine, say German government sources, on the first day of the NATO summit in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Germany is the second largest military contributor to Ukraine after the USA. Before this new aid, Germany had already announced on May 13, on the eve of a visit by President Volodymyr Zelensky, arms deliveries for 2.7 billion euros.
For his part, French President Emmanuel Macron announced that France would deliver long-range “Scalp” missiles to Ukraine.
“We have decided to deliver new missiles allowing deep strikes to Ukraine,” declared Emmanuel Macron on his arrival at the NATO summit.
