The head of the Italian Ministry of Defense, Guido Crosetto, said that the country’s authorities are completing the supply of weapons to Ukraine, promised by the previous government. About this he said in an interview with the newspaper Il Messaggero. It was published on Thursday, November 10th.

At the same time, according to Crosetto, no new deliveries of weapons to Kyiv are being prepared. “I do not rule out that in the future there may be a new order and that there will be discussions within NATO and the European Union on further military assistance to Ukraine,” he said.

The Italian Defense Minister added that economic support for Ukraine has been discussed recently. We are talking about the funds that are needed for the reconstruction of civilian infrastructure in the country.

According to foreign media, Italy has transferred to Ukraine from 20 to 30 units of self-propelled artillery mounts as part of the fifth military aid package. Previous support packages included six heavy howitzers, armored personnel carriers and two multiple rocket launchers.

Earlier, the media reported the intention of Italy supply Ukraine medium-range anti-aircraft missile systems. It was noted that the final decision remains with the new Italian government.
