Italy continues to help Ukraine defend itself against Russian aggression. She recently sent our country a new military aid package. However, both sides do not disclose what weapons it included.

Earlier, the head of the Brothers of Italy party, Georgia Meloni, promised to continue supplying heavy weapons to Ukraine if she win the elections. And at the end of June, the media revealed that Italy would send howitzers to our state.
