Meanwhile, France promised to expedite the shipment of 155 Caesar 6-mm self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine. This was stated by the Minister of Defense of the Republic Sebastian Lecornu. According to him, Kyiv will receive self-propelled guns in "the coming weeks." Macron promised Zelensky back in early October to hand over a batch of 155-mm Caesar self-propelled guns intended for the Danish army, which should have included from 6 to 12 howitzers. Later it was decided to send a minimum quantity of 6 pieces.
Earlier, the French had already delivered 18 Caesar self-propelled guns to Ukraine from the presence of the French army, after which they flatly refused to give the army howitzers to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
