Germany, Netherlands to provide Ukraine with six more howitzers

Germany and the Netherlands will soon hand over six more Panzerhaubitze2000 self-propelled artillery units to Ukraine, SİA informs, citing Ukrinform.

"In Germany, we have decided that we can give Ukraine additional self-propelled howitzers. Together with the Netherlands, it will be six," German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht said.

At the same time, she acknowledged that Germany has now exhausted its resources to provide artillery units of this type and is no longer able to transfer them to Ukraine without reducing the country's own defense capabilities.

"Thus, I have reached the absolute limit of what is responsible. But it is responsible, indeed, because Ukraine must be supported now," the minister said.

Earlier, Germany had already handed over seven such systems to Ukraine and the Netherlands – five. In May, the Ukrainian military trained to operate them at a German test site.
