The German Ambassador to Ukraine met with the Minister of Finance
Discussed with the Minister of Finance Serhiy Marchenko the current state in the financial sector and the provision of grants (1 billion euros) to Ukraine from Germany, – says in the message.
The diplomat explained that she was pleased with the close cooperation between the ministries of finance of our countries.
At the same time, Germany is in no hurry to provide assistance to Ukraine. Responding to these media reproaches, Economy Minister Robert Gabek explained that they could not fulfill all the wishes.
However, the German minister assured that the Ukrainian military was learning to cope with the German Panzerhaubitze 2000 howitzers that would go to the front.
Soon Germany will transfer these weapons to Ukraine. Therefore, it cannot be said that the FRG does not supply or sends too little assistance to Ukraine. True, Berlin really cannot satisfy all the needs of Kyiv. Therefore, a certain tension arose,” Gabek noted.
By the way, the Panzerhaubitze 2000 is one of the most modern artillery installations in the world. It is known that this is a self-propelled gun-howitzer with a caliber of 155 millimeters, developed by the German concern Krauss-Maffei Wegmann.
This installation has an automatic loading system with an ammunition load of 60 rounds and 228 modular projectiles. Panzerhaubitze 2000 is equipped with a modern high-precision ground navigation system. The range of fire with a standard projectile is up to 30 – 36 kilometers.
