On Wednesday, the Slovak government decided that the country would donate military equipment worth €21.6 million to Ukraine, according to an announcement from Slovak Defense Minister Jaroslav Naď. However, the minister did not specify the form of assistance or any equipment.

The defense minister emphasized that the military material came from the warehouse of the Slovak army.

According to Naď, sending the military supplies will help Ukraine without harming Slovakia’s defense readiness. “We are cooperating very intensively with Ukraine and trying to find solutions to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Together with the chief of the general staff, we have put together military material worth approximately €21.6 million.”

Members of NATO have agreed not to specific details about military material deliveries to Ukraine.

At the beginning of April, Slovakia donated its S-300 anti-missile system to Ukraine. Meanwhile, four Patriot anti-missile batteries supplied by Germany, the Netherlands, and the USA, protect Slovakian airspace.

Slovakia also wants to sell the Zuzana self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine, which Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová confirmed while visiting Kyiv on Tuesday.
