Spain is going to supply a new package of military aid to Ukraine, which includes a battery of the Aspide anti-aircraft missile complex, the MIM-23 Hawk air defense systems, anti-tank missile systems, guns and shells for them, and “other military equipment.” This was stated by Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, at a briefing in Kyiv with his Spanish counterpart, José Manuel Albares.

The minister noted that Spain’s decision to transfer the Hawk systems a few weeks ago became a signal for other countries to start searching for Hawk systems to transfer them to Ukraine.
