Spain to send ‘offensive military hardware’ to Ukraine, PM says

MADRID, Spain — Spain will supply “military hardware” to Ukraine following Russia’s invasion of its pro-Western neighbor, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez tells parliament.

“I… want to announce to you that Spain will deliver offensive military hardware to the Ukrainian resistance,” Sanchez said.

Until now, Spain had said it would send military support only as part of a wider package unveiled by the European Union on Sunday, in which Brussels agreed to unblock 450 million euros ($500 million) for member states to buy arms for Ukraine.

Sanchez says Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine “is a brutal attempt to stop the construction of a European space based on values radically opposed to the authoritarianism he represents.”
