She made the announcement during a meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group, chaired by U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

On May 6, Robles confirmed that Madrid has delivered a batch of interceptor missiles for Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine.

In March, media outlets reported that Spain would deliver 19 Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine, pulling them from long-term storage.
