Germany plans to send $13 billion in military aid to Ukraine
German government has agreed to send an additional 12 billion Euros ($13.01 billion) in military support to Ukraine.
On Wednesday, the budget committee of the German Bundestag approved the non-budgetary financial support requested by the defense and foreign ministries.
The additional financing includes 3.2 billion Euros to be disbursed in 2023 and credit facilities of 8.8 billion Euros between 2024 and 2032.
“With the money, Ukraine can buy weapons directly with the support of the German government,” three politicians representing the coalition government on the committee said in a statement.
“It’s important to support Ukraine for as long as necessary,” they added.
The German Foreign Ministry said that Berlin has provided more than 14.2 billion Euros in support of Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion.
