Germany to send more PzH 2000 Howitzers to Ukraine

Berlin: Germany will give Ukraine two or three more self-propelled Panzerhaubitze 2000 howitzers in response to Kiev’s pleas for more heavy weaponry, German media said Friday.

Ukraine has asked Europe for 18 German-made PzH 2000 howitzers to fully arm an artillery battalion, DPA news agency said. Germany has so far sent seven howitzers, with another five donated by the Netherlands.
Berlin reportedly told Kiev it would give a few more weapons as long as other EU partners joined the procurement scheme, dpa learned from the German Defense Ministry’s circles.
The ministry is reportedly in talks with the Dutch and another potential donor in the effort to rack up six more 155mm weapons for Ukraine. Russia has warned that any military cargoes would be treated as legitimate targets. (UNI/SPUTNIK)
