Denys Shymlal, Ukraine’s Prime Minister reached out to Germany on Sunday for seeking heavy weapons that will help them boost their air defences. This is the first visit by a dignitary of such high level to Germany which in a way indicates easing of tensions between Kyiv and Berlin after some years of strain. This probably is in the light of the western countries joining hands to back Ukraine in the prevailing war between Ukraine and Russia. In the early days of war, Germany’s military aid to Ukraine was hesitant and irregular especially in comparison to other European countries and America. However, Mr. Shymlal acknowledged that Germany’s military aid with supply of howitzer 2000 or MARS rocket launchers have been instrumental to their war cause and has been “working well on the battle field.” Along with this, the air defence system named Iris-Tis is expected to be delivered in the coming autumn. Shymlal also said that he “hopest that Germany will become one of the leaders in the process of developing Ukrainian air defence.”
