On March 2, 2022, Spain announced the supply of offensive military equipment to Ukraine. All the European countries continue to support Ukraine with military equipment and weapons to counter the invasion of the country by the Russian army.
On April 13, 2022, the European Union (EU) has adopted two assistance measures under the European Peace Facility (EPF) that will allow the EU to further support the capabilities and resilience of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country, and protect the civilian population against the Russian forces deployed in Ukraine.
The EU has allocated a total of €1.5 billion to support EU Member States’ supplies of military equipment to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The agreed measures will finance both the provision of equipment and supplies to the Ukrainian Armed Forces by the EU Member States, including personal protective equipment, first aid kits and fuel, as well as military equipment designed to deliver lethal force for defensive purposes. The duration of the assistance measures is also extended by 24 months.
