"I am grateful to the Bulgarian Parliament for approving the delivery of APCs to Ukraine, as well as for the new military aid package." This message was delivered by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski on the X platform after the National Assembly overrode the presidential veto on the law ratifying the agreement with Ukraine on the free provision of armoured transport equipment.
With 147 votes in favour, 55 against and 7 abstentions, on 8 December the parliament approved the provision of an additional military aid package to Ukraine. The decision will send portable anti-aircraft missile complexes and obsolete or surplus anti-aircraft missiles to Kiev. 

"This decision strengthens our Europe and defends freedom," BGNES quotes Zelenski as saying.
