Germany approves purchase of ammunition for Ukraine

The German Parliament’s Budget Committee has given nod to the procurement of additional ammunition for the Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled artillery system, Leopard 2 battle tank and Puma infantry fighting vehicle, which will be used to meet the Bundeswehr’s own needs and support Ukraine.

According to the ministry, this way the Bundeswehr will cover its own needs, provide further support to Ukraine and replace the ammunition stocks that have already been sent to Kyiv.

To be noted, every procurement project of the Bundeswehr with a volume of more than EUR 25 million must be approved by the budget committee of the Bundestag.
