As Ukrinform reports with reference to the press release of the Ministry of Defense of Spain, Minister Margarita Robles made a corresponding statement at the Ukraine Defense Contact Group meeting in the Rammstein format on Thursday.

In her speech, the minister briefed on the state of supplies of material and technical means with which Spain supports Ukraine, pointing out the shipment of 20 tracked armored vehicles that will arrive in Poland on June 19, in addition to the 40 already delivered, as well as four Leopard 2A4 tanks, which were under repair.

"Ukraine defends a just cause and therefore has our full support not only in providing weapons but also in training Ukrainian fighters," Robles said, adding that "the position of Spain, like the rest of NATO and the European Union member states, regarding support is clear and decisive."

The minister also announced the transfer of the Role 2 plus field hospital capable of providing emergency surgical care and treatment. It can be deployed in 20 containers. Before that, the military, responsible for the hospital's work, should undergo appropriate training in Spain.
