The ministry's press service said in a message that "support will be provided where it is most needed".

Germany will also assist in the fight against massive and far-reaching minefields of the russians with the help of mine clearance systems, armored engineering vehicles and armored evacuation vehicles. To do this, the Ministry of Defense provides 200 MRAP armored combat vehicles so that mine clearance specialists can approach Russian minefields in a protected form.
With the help of winter equipment, sets of spare parts for already delivered systems and vehicles, it is planned to strengthen the stability of the Ukrainian armed forces for the coming months. The mobile field hospital that has already been installed will also serve this purpose.
In addition, 50 surface drones will help repel the aggressor not only on land, but also at sea.
Individual projects will be implemented through donations from the Bundeswehr reserves, as well as jointly with industrial partners.
