Officially: Estonia has sent 122-mm howitzers to Ukraine
The Republic of Estonia had shipped a batch of lethal weapons, including 122-mm howitzers, to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Militarnyi reports about this with reference to the Estonian government.
The military aid for Ukraine was collected by private enterprises in cooperation with state institutions.
In particular, Estonia has donated anti-tank missiles, howitzers, anti-tank mines, recoilless anti-tank guns, automatic weapons, ammunition, disposable grenade launchers, hand grenades, and anti-tank missiles compatible with the Ukrainian lethal weapons, most probably Javelin systems.
The Republic of Estonia is handing over 122-mm D-30 howitzers to Ukraine.
Martin Hurt, Baltic Security Spokesman, mentioned that the cargo is worth approximately 220 million euros.
“For Ukraine to remain free, more is needed,” said Martin Hurt.
Estonia has also provided Ukraine with helmets, ballistic vests, communications equipment, drones, night-vision devices, and laser rangefinders.
The Baltic state is also handing over to Ukraine medical supplies and chemical protective clothing against the Russian potential chemical attacks.
Previously, in January 2022, in the light of the Russian threat, Estonia intended to hand over 122-millimeter howitzers to Ukraine.
However, this step required the approval of Berlin, as the howitzers were issued by the German Democratic Republic. Official Berlin has repeatedly refused to supply Ukraine with weapons amid strained relations between Kyiv and Moscow.
Artillery guns were produced in the GDR-era (German Democratic Republic), and in the 1990s, the authorities of united Germany sold them to Finland.
