Germany Provides Support for Ukraine with Weaponry and Military Hardware

Germany helps Ukraine by giving them equipment and weapons. These come from the Federal Arms Forces and from industry, and they are paid for by funds from the Federal Government for building security capacity.

The German Federal Government helps the Ukrainian military in close coordination with its partners and allies. This list gives an overview of both the deadly and non-lethal ways that Germany’s military helps Ukraine. It includes shipments from the Federal Armed Forces as well as supplies from German industry that were paid for with money from the Federal Government’s so-called “security capacity building” program, according to The German Federal Government website on December 20, 2022.

In the 2022 budget process, the funds for the Security Capacity Building Initiative were raised to a total of 2 billion euros. The extra money will be used mainly to help Ukraine. At the same time, they will be used to pay for Germany’s increased required contributions to the European Peace Facility (EPF), which pay back EU member states for the costs they incurred when helping Ukraine.

Between January 1, 2022 and December 19, 2022, the Federal Government will grant 2,255,473,391 licenses for the export of military goods. The total license value includes the above-mentioned commodities to the extent that their export is subject to licensing requirements under German foreign trade legislation. This is not the case for every item listed above. In order to expedite the processing of some shipments, the federal government has simplified certain licensing procedures, such as those pertaining to military protective equipment.

Additionally, these deliveries are not included in the total license cost. The stated values for used material from the German Armed Forces are also based on current values, which may be much lower than the equivalent values for new or replacement goods. The overall worth of the license includes the commodities, regardless of how they were acquired and delivered. For security purposes, the Federal Government withholds more information until the products have been delivered.

  • Deliveries from industry stocks sponsored by German funding for the development of security capabilities. Some of the deliveries necessitate continuous upgrades or productions, and training is conducted.
