Ukraine received the first CAESAR artillery installations from Denmark.

Ukraine received CAESAR self-propelled artillery mounts from Denmark, and they have already taken up combat duty, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said at a briefing at the Military Media Center.

“We negotiated, the project was not easy, today I want to brag to you: the first Caesars have arrived in Ukraine. Made in France, but these are Danish Caesars that are on combat duty,” Reznikov said.

In January, the Danish authorities decided to transfer 19 CAESAR self-propelled artillery mounts ordered from France to Ukraine.

In March, the Danish Acting Minister of Defense announced that the first Leopard 1 tanks from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands would be handed over to Ukraine in early May.
