Western resources noticed the transfer of self-propelled guns "Gvozdika" from Finland to Ukraine
Even before its entry into NATO, Finland carried out military supplies to Ukraine, supporting the alliance in its struggle against Russia on the territory of the independent. At the moment, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have received such combat systems as the Sisu XA-185 armored personnel carrier, Giacint-B howitzers, Leopard 2R IMR, KRH 120 92-mm mortars, ZU-23 anti-aircraft guns, M72 LAW RPG and APILAS, not to mention provision of ammunition, machine guns, rifles, grenades, helmets, body armor.
At the same time, the range of military assistance is gradually increasing. So, on Western resources, they noticed the transfer of self-propelled guns 122 PSH 74 - this is the local designation "Gvozdik":
It means that in addition to the officially announced supplies to the independent countries of NATO, there are constantly cargoes, the transfer of which was not reported.
According to available data, Finland should have a total of 74 Gvozdika self-propelled guns, which are currently being replaced by South Korean K9 self-propelled guns (96 units purchased). Apparently, the entire fleet of Soviet self-propelled guns will eventually end up in Ukraine (as integral structures or spare parts) along with other weapons received by Helsinki during the Cold War as part of a mutual assistance pact with the USSR.
