Spain has sent five transport planes of the Spanish Air Force with ammunition for large-caliber artillery systems to Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports.

“The Spanish Ministry of Defense officially announced that on Sep. 9, 2022, a T-23 aircraft of the Spanish Air Force took off from the Torrejon de Ardoz air base [Madrid] and transports large-caliber field artillery ammunition to Ukraine. This is already the fifth flight with weapons transferred to Ukraine by Spain in recent days. Last week, four flights took off from a base in Roti [Cadiz] with the support of an ally country. In total, the cargoes carried out these days amount to 75 pallets of large-caliber ammunition,” the message said on Facebook.
