Spain Sent 5 Planes With Ammunition to Ukraine

On September 9, the 5th aircraft of the Spanish Armed Forces flew to Ukraine with ammunition for large-calibre artillery

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that on September 9, the fifth T-23 aircraft of the Spanish Aerospace Forces took off from the military base in Roti (Cadiz), carrying ammunition for large-calibre artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to the minister of defence of Spain, Margarita Robles, 4 T-23s flew earlier, and the total number of shells for Ukraine is 75 pallets. It is known that aid from Spain was transferred in cooperation with a partner country, but it is not clear which one.

At the request of the Ministry of defence of Ukraine, the Spanish Ministry of defence sent a truck with medical assistance and 20 trucks with winter clothing and logistical equipment to the needs of the AFU.

During a meeting of the defence Ministries of Ukraine and Spain in Prague, Margarita Robles stated that "all these deliveries are an example of the decisive and constant support of the Ukrainian people from Spain for a long time."
