European Pravda reports, referencing ZDF, that the newly appointed Minister of Defense of the Federal Republic of Germany, Boris Pistorius, has announced a forthcoming spring €1 billion military aid package for Ukraine following the Ukraine Defense Contact Group meeting in Ramstein, Germany.

According to Pistorius, the military aid package will reportedly consist of the following:

  • Patriot missile system
  • seven Gepard anti-aircraft self-propelled artillery
  • Iris-T anti-aircraft missile complexes
  • additional guided missiles

According to Pistorius, the package will also entail the training of troops. Furthermore, the total value of Germany’s military assistance will exceed €3.3 billion.

“Germany will not cease its support for Ukraine,” Pistorius declared.

The Minister also reported that Western allies have not yet agreed to provide Ukraine with Leopard 2 main battle tanks. However, Pistorius ordered his ministry to inspect tank stockpiles in anticipation of a possible supply.
