Ukraine and France Working On Supply of New CAESARs - Kuleba

Thursday, 22 September 2022

After a meeting with his French counterpart Catherine Colonna in New York, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine announced that the two countries are working on the supply of new CAESARs.

"In our meeting, my French counterpart Catherine Colonna and I focused on ways to hold Russia accountable for its crimes and France's contribution to the recovery of Ukraine's war-torn regions," Kuleba wrote on Twitter.

According to the Minister, he presented to his French colleague the Kyiv Security Compact.

"We are also working on supplies of new CAESARs to Ukraine," he added.

As previously reported, France will spend 85 million euros on replacing 18 Caesar self-propelled artillery units given to Ukraine, as its stockpile has since been reduced by a quarter.

Earlier, French Minister of the Armed Forces, Sébastien Lecornu, also said Ukraine would receive a "significant number" of VAB armoured vehicles from Paris.
