“Ukraine received an estimated 10-12 pieces from France after training with the potent system last month”, the post says.

Probably, these SPGs have been destroying the occupiers on the front line for a month now. The director of the “Return Alive Foundation” Taras Chmut gave a hint about them: "So what about CAESARs? They’ve been annihilating the enemy for a month now".

Defense Express reminds that the French government decided to hand over 155 mm CAESAR self-propelled artillery guns to Ukraine on April 22.

At that time it was stated that it was probably the supply of 12 SPGs from the reserves of the French army, and it was specified that about 40 of our artillerymen were already learning to use these self-propelled artillery units.
