الغزو الروسي لأوكرانيا - اليوم 119
June 22, 2022 - German self-propelled howitzers have arrived in Ukraine in the first delivery of heavy weapons promised by Berlin, as Ukrainian and Russian forces are entrenched in eastern Ukrainian battlegrounds.
The Panzerhaubitze 2000 is one of the most powerful artillery weapons in Bundeswehr inventories and can hit targets at a distance of 40km.
Andriy Yermak, the head of Ukraine's president's office, posted a list of other weapons promised by Germany, including 30 Gepard tanks and three MARS II multiple rocket launchers, as well as 500 shoulder-fired Stinger missiles.
Fighting in the months-long war has favoured Russia in recent weeks because of its huge edge in artillery firepower, a fact Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy acknowledged in a late Tuesday address, Reuters reports.
