Germany will deliver 5,000 military helmets to Ukraine following a request from the country’s embassy, Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht said in Berlin on Wednesday.
She said that it was “a very clear signal” that Germany stands by Ukraine’s side.
Defense Ministry spokesman Arne Collatz said he couldn’t give a timeline for the delivery.
Germany has declined to join allies such as the United States and the United Kingdom in providing weapons to Ukraine.
Collatz said an Estonian request for authorization to supply old German howitzers to Kyiv is still being examined.
