Ukraine wanted to order artillery weapons from the Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) arms group, reported Die Welt, citing obtained documents. According to Die Welt, the delivery would be ready in 2.5 years at the earliest. The KMW didn’t want to begin production until there was a clear signal from the government that the howitzers could be shipped to Ukraine.
