“The EU has started to deliver more than 90 off-road trucks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine under the European Peace Facility. The trucks will support medical, engineering and logistic units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.”

It includes the delivery of medical equipment (including field hospital), engineering equipment (including demining tools), items for logistics units (including trucks and other assets) and equipment to enhance cyber defence capabilities.”
