“Spain has pledged to provide military support to Ukraine worth 1 billion euros ($1.08 billion) this year under an agreement signed on Monday between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez in Madrid. ‘It is more important than ever to redouble our support,’ Sanchez told a press conference. The pact, which covers the next decade, calls for the supply of modern military equipment for ground, aerial, naval and other uses, ‘prioritising Ukraine’s key capacity needs,’ and an emphasis on maritime means to protect Ukraine’s food export routes, but gave no specifics. El Pais newspaper reported earlier on Monday that Spain would commit to send Ukraine a dozen U.S.-made Patriot anti-aircraft missiles, 19 second-hand German-made Leopard 2A4 tanks, as well as other Spanish-made weapons such as anti-drone gear and ammunition.” (05/27/24)
