The Greek government has transferred or plans to transfer an “incredible amount” of weapons to Ukraine weapons, writes Pronews.gr. According to the portal, this is how Defense Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos described the deliveries. Weapons from the army warehouses on the Greek islands will be used to transfer to Kyiv.
We are talking about the following types of weapons and ammunition:
- 122 BMP-1s with ammunition;
- 15,000 73mm shells;
- 20,000 AK-47s;
- 3.2 million caliber rounds 7.62 mm;
- 60 FIM-92 Stinger MANPADS;
- 17 thousand 150 mm artillery shells;
- 1.1 thousand RPG anti-tank grenades -18.
According to Pronews, six Lockheed C-130 Greek transport aircraft, ten Canadian and five New Zealand transport aircraft were used to transport the listed weapons and equipment.
In April, Panagiotopoulos said that Athens no longer plans to send military equipment to Kyiv, as this would weaken the defense of Greece itself. By that time, the Greek authorities had already sent two S-130 aircraft with Kalashnikov assault rifles and portable launchers to Ukraine.
In May, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that Berlin had concluded an agreement with Athens: they would transfer Soviet tanks to Kyiv, and the FRG will give them modern German cars in return.
