Media: Germany prepares winter assistance package for Ukraine

Germany has pledged to continue supplying weapons to Ukraine and is already planning a winter military assistance package to help the country repel Russian drone and missile attacks, said German Chancellor Olaf Scholz during a speech in the Bundestag, according to Tagesschau.

The package would include “everything needed for air defense,” Scholz added.

Earlier, the German government announced it would allocate a €76 million ($80 million) grant for Ukraine’s national power grid operator Ukrenergo to finance the protection of substations, new high-voltage equipment, and network upgrades along the border with Europe. The grant agreement was signed on 13 October, Ukrenergo announced.
