In Policy Shift, Germany to Send Dozens of Anti-Aircraft Vehicles to Ukraine

HeadlineApr 27, 2022

Germany has announced it will begin sending dozens of armored anti-aircraft vehicles to Ukraine in a marked policy shift. On Tuesday, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met with military leaders from 40 nations at the U.S. air base in Ramstein, Germany. Austin vowed allied nations would do more to help arm Ukraine.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin: “But we don’t have any time to waste. The briefings today laid out clearly why the coming weeks will be so crucial for Ukraine, so we’ve got to move at the speed of war. And I know that all the leaders leave today more resolved than ever to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression and atrocities.”
