Germany on Saturday announced 2.7 billion euro ($3.0 billion) of military aid to Ukraine, its biggest such package yet, and pledged further support for Kyiv for as long as necessary, APA reports citing Reuters.

The package will include 30 Leopard 1 tanks, 15 Gepard anti-aircraft tanks, over 200 reconnaissance drones and four Iris-T anti-aircraft systems, according to a defence ministry statement.

"We all wish for a speedy end to this terrible and illegal war.... Unfortunately, this is not yet foreseeable. Therefore, Germany will provide any help it can - as long as it takes," German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius said.

"Thank you to our allies," Andriy Yermak, chief of staff to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, wrote in a post on Telegram confirming the package.
