Ukraine has received 155-millimeter self-propelled howitzers Panzerhaubitze 2000s ((PzH 2000)) from Germany, Ukraine's Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said on Tuesday.

"German Panzerhaubitze 2000s with trained Ukrainian crews have joined the Ukrainian artillery family," Reznikov wrote on Facebook.

The supply of PzH 2000 is an example of cooperation in support of Ukraine, Reznikov said.

Apart from PzH 2000, Ukraine uses five types of 155-mm artillery, namely M777, FH70, M109, AHS Krab and Ceasar howitzers, the minister added.

Last month, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said the government of Germany is working to provide modern weapons to Ukraine.
