French Defense Minister Sebastien Lecornu said that Paris is preparing a new package of military assistance for Ukraine.

This information was reported by Le Monde, URA-Inform reports.  

He noted that it would include hundreds of armored vehicles and Aster missiles. The head of the French defense department clarified that our state will receive old armored vehicles, which are «still in good working order», but they are going to replace them with newer ones.

«To hold such a large front line , the Ukrainian army needs, for example, our armored front-line vehicles: this is absolutely necessary for the mobility of troops. This old equipment, which is still serviceable, will be able to directly benefit Ukraine in significant quantities. We are talking about hundreds in 2024 and early 2025», — the minister said.

In addition, Paris will provide Kiev with a new batch of Aster 30 anti-aircraft missiles for the SAMP/T air defense system, which are an analogue of the Patriot system.

«We are also developing remote-controlled ammunition in a very short time frame to deliver it to the Ukrainians this summer», — added Sebastien Lecornu.

Recall that it was previously reported what Ukraine will be forced to do without US help: Zelensky gave a forecast.
