Arms For Ukraine: French Weapons Deliveries To Kyiv

France has been a major source of military support for Ukraine. Like most European nations, France has opted not to disclose details of its arms deliveries to Ukraine with the exception of the Caesar SPGs, the disclosure of which also served the purpose of publicly reaffirming France's support to Ukraine and sending a message of deterrence to Moscow. The following list attempts to keep track of military equipment delivered or pledged to Ukraine by France during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The entries below are sorted by armament category (with a flag denoting the country of origin). Due to the confidential nature of some arms deliveries they can serve only as a lower bound to the total volume of weaponry delivered. This list will be updated as further military support is uncovered or declared.
* Purchases by the Ukrainian government from French defence companies.
** Crowdfunded by the Ukrainian public.
