Frank-Walter Steinmeier made such a statement at a summer press conference in Berlin. According to Olaf Scholz, the budget document has already been approved, and Germany can support the Ukrainian army for 5 years.
The chancellor marked the start of the federal long-term military support countdown from February 24, 2022. Last year, in 2022, Berlin sent Kyiv military support of €2 billion. In 2023, the Bundestag should transfer €5.4 billion to strengthen the Ukrainian army. And from 2024 to 2027, Ukraine will receive military packages with an estimated cost of €10.5 billion.
Germany does not stop supplying weapons, supports Kyiv in the political arena and plans to become one of the country's largest partners, where there has been a war for more than a year.
