Countries will donate about 92 million euros - with this money, 16 Zuzana 2 self-propelled artillery mounts will be manufactured in Slovakia. This was announced by Slovak Defense Minister Jaroslav Nagy on Twitter.
We have just signed an agreement with Denmark, Germany and Norway, which will finance the production of 16 modern Zuzana 2 howitzers for Ukraine in the amount of 92 million euros.
