Bulgaria to send nine Boeing aircraft with weapons to Ukraine - media

The Bulgarian Defense Ministry has completed the formation of the list of weapons that it is ready to provide to Ukraine for protection against Russian aggression.

That's according to Novinite, Ukrinform reports.

Earlier, the Bulgarian parliament gave the ministry one month to prepare this list.

The chosen option for helping Ukraine will be classified information. But the decision must go through the government and parliament.

So far, it is known that the shipment will be delivered to Ukraine by nine Boeing C-17 military transport aircraft.

According to Ukraine's Ambassador to Bulgaria, Vitalii Moskalenko, the list is "long and serious" and it includes artillery guns, means of defense, shells and ammunition.

According to the report, Bulgaria cannot transfer S-300 missile systems because it needs them to protect strategic sites in the country.

The Bulgarian parliament voted on November 3 to approve the supply of weapons to Ukraine amid Russian aggression.
