Ukraine will soon receive 16 more Zuzana 2 howitzers – Slovak president

Slovakia will soon deliver 16 more Zuzana 2 self-propelled artillery pieces to Ukraine.

Slovak President Zuzana Caputova said this at a joint press conference with her Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky in Bratislava on Friday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

Caputova said that Slovakia had provided Ukraine with air defense equipment and combat aircraft and that cooperation in this area was gradually switching to cooperation in other areas. She said that a contract for the supply of 16 Zuzana 2 howitzers to Ukraine had been signed and that this would happen very soon.

She added that Slovakia and Ukraine planned to jointly develop a new type of howitzer and start joint production of Zuzana ammunition and the Bozena demining system.

Caputova said Ukraine was willing to increase the amount of demining equipment.

In January, Slovakia sent the last of the eight Zuzana 2 self-propelled artillery pieces purchased by Ukraine.
