Netherlands To Supply Ukraine With 5 Self-Propelled Howitzers - Defense Minister - UrduPoint

Netherlands will supply Ukraine with five self-propelled howitzers and Germany will supply another seven, Dutch Defense Minister Kajsa Ollongren said in a letter to the Dutch lower house on Friday.

"The cabinet has recently informed the house of representatives about a possible delivery of armored howitzers in cooperation with Germany ... substantially, we are talking about 12 self-propelled artillery installations, five of which will be supplied by the Netherlands, and seven by Germany," the letter read.

Amsterdam has also sent over 102 million Euros ($105.8 million) worth of military aid to Kiev, according to the letter.

Earlier in May, the German cabinet announced it would send Ukraine seven 155 mm self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine from Berlin's weapons stockpiles despite concerns that only 40 machines of its 200-piece arsenal are combat-ready.

On Wednesday, German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht said that Ukrainian soldiers already started receiving training in Germany to operate the Panzerhaubitze 2000 howitzers.
