The Minister of Defence, Margarita Robles, attended the departure from Alcala de Henares on Thursday, October 6, of a land convoy transporting eight light vehicles, two ambulances and five tonnes of various medical equipment to Poland.
The vehicles and medical equipment were provided by the Army, the Navy and the UME, and were prepared for transport by the Projection Support Group (GAPRO), a unit that provides logistical support for operations and exercises both on national territory and in operations abroad.
Over the next few days, a further shipment of another 12 heavy vehicles will be sent by sea from the port of Bilbao to the port of an allied country close to Ukraine and from there by land to a Polish logistics centre.
Robles explained that “these are the priorities that Ukraine has at the moment and this is what they are asking us for, the war is being very cruel, there are many wounded people and they urgently need medical material.”

Well done to the Uk government for this much needed medical supplies, all caused by one man’s foolishness Putin the mad one.
