Spain will give 20 armored personal carriers and four Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine, Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles said on June 15 in a statement.
The equipment was previously under repair, and is set to arrive in Poland on June 19. From there, it will be sent directly to Ukraine.
The Defense Minister also announced the donation of a Role 2+ hospital to Ukraine, a rapidly deployable emergency unit that is capable of supporting surgery and essential post-operative management.
Training of Ukrainian soldiers who will operate the Role 2+ will take place in Spain before the unit is sent.
Spain previously sent Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine in late April.
"Our commitment to support Ukraine in its search for a comprehensive, just and lasting peace will remain firm as long as it is necessary," Robles said.
