Greece to stop supplying arms to Ukraine

Greece to stop supplying arms to Ukraine. Greek government spokesman Ioannis Oikonomou confirmed on Friday at an EU news briefing.

The cabinet spokesman was asked whether the government plans to send additional military equipment to Ukraine. “There is nothing new in this direction from what has been done so far. Nothing like that is being discussed,” Oikonomou said.

This comes after Russia threatened the EU and NATO allies on supplying arms to Ukraine.

When asked to clarify whether Greece had sent Stinger man-portable air defence systems to Ukraine taken from active units of the Greek army, Oikonomou said: “It is known what defence equipment was sent along with humanitarian aid to Ukraine.”

In late February, the Greek Ministry of National Defense reported that Greece had sent humanitarian aid and military equipment to Poland for Ukraine on C-130 military transport planes.

Greek TV channel Open then reported that 20,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles, had been sent to Ukraine. Nine years ago, these weapons were seized from the Nour-M ship, which had left a Ukrainian port and was bound for Libya.

Greek National Defense Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos told Greek lawmakers that Greece no longer plans to send military equipment to Ukraine, but will continue to send humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

The minister said Greece’s defence of its own territory should not be weakened, especially on the islands, by sending new weapons to Ukraine.
