Monday, 24 June 2024

Germany has handed over 41 Mercedes Arocs lorries to Ukraine for use by Ukraine's State Border Guard Service.

The ambassador posted a photo of the handover ceremony in Kyiv. 

"These 41 Mercedes Arocs lorries will help the Border Guard Service units to ensure logistics at the front line. This is yet another German contribution to support Ukraine's defence struggle against the Russian aggressor," Martin Jaeger, German Ambassador to Ukraine, said on X (Twitter).

Germany has also recently donated special equipment to help Ukraine rebuild its energy infrastructure.

In mid-June, Germany reported that it had transferred a large batch of weapons to Ukraine, which included IRIS-T air defence systems, tanks and HIMARS multiple-launch rocket systems.
