In Deal to Help Ukraine, Germany Sends Greece Fighting Vehicles

ATHENS – In an agreement that aids Ukraine as it battles the ongoing Russian invasion – and adds to Greece’s arsenal during provocations from Turkey – Germany sent infantry fighting vehicles known as Marder.

That’s in return for Greece sending 40 Soviet designed tanks to Ukraine that will be used against the country that made them as the Ukrainians, aided by supplies from other countries including Greece, are beating back the Russian forces.

Germany delivered six of the 40 armored vehicles to Greece so far and another 14 are due to arrive by Oct. 21, said EURACTIV, citing unnamed sources, after the European Union had slowed delivery of more weapons to Ukraine.

Greece will turn over 40 Soviet-designed BMP-1 tanks to Ukraine which are amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicles, the deal first announced by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the end of May.
