Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, announced that Greece started supplying its BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine.

Kuleba stated this after negotiations with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece, Nikos Dendias, during a joint press conference in Kyiv.

“We especially appreciate the weapons that Greece is transferring to Ukraine so that we can defend our land. And it is very important that the long-awaited shipment of BMP-1 armored infantry vehicles from Greece to Ukraine has already begun. They will soon arrive to our army and will instantly strengthen combat capability and defense capability of our country,” Kuleba said.

Earlier it was reported that Ukraine would receive 100 BMPs from Greece and Slovakia while Germany would replenish those under the so-called “circular exchange” scheme: the countries were going to provide their Soviet-era vehicles for Ukraine and receive new replenishment from Germany.
