“To date, we have delivered (to Ukraine – ed.) 300 tons of military cargo. To let you know, this is a historic, unprecedented effort for Spain’s potential… Of course, this is an extraordinary effort for Spain, which has never happened,” Sánchez emphasized.

According to the Prime Minister, in recent deliveries, Spain transferred air defense systems, winter equipment, as well as armored vehicles to Ukraine. Spain also organized basic training for members of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

“I think Spain stands in solidarity with Ukraine — with the abilities we just have in our country,” Sánchez said.

Spain’s share of the European Peace Fund is 9 percent or 2.5 billion euros, the politician noted.

On October 6, 2022, the Spanish Ministry of Defense sent a convoy with army SUVs, ambulances and medical equipment to Ukraine.

The delivery is designed for priority logistics and medical needs of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. Twelve more trucks will be shipped by sea from Spain in the coming days.

For reference. The European Peace Fund (EPF) was established in March 2021 to empower the European Union to provide security to its citizens and partners. This enables the EU to provide all kinds of equipment and infrastructure to the armed forces of EU partners in accordance with international law, human rights and international humanitarian law.
