The German government announces it will send 2,700 anti-aircraft missiles to Ukraine in an attempt to help the embattled country combat the Russian invaders, Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports.

Last week, Germany decided to supply 1,000 anti-tank missiles and 500 surface-to-air rockets to Ukraine. The move was a reversal of decades of German foreign policy that have rarely seen arms transferred to war zones.
