The vehicles in question are tracked armoured vehicles of the M113 type, which were withdrawn from service by the Belgian army 10 years ago.

"Supporting Ukraine is not a competition between allies, but the result of a coordinated approach, the goal of which is to respond to needs as best as possible. This new package fully fits into this logic," Ludivine Dedonder said.

The number of armoured vehicles is not specified.

Last week, Belgium announced its intention to transfer to Ukraine a 32.4 million euros worth of 105-millimetre artillery projectiles.
