The Pentagon is setting up a command and control center in Stuttgart, Germany, to coordinate the delivery of military aid to Ukraine. This was reported to journalists by a senior representative of the US Department of Defense.

The EUCOM center is based at the US European Command headquarters in Stuttgart and is run by an American military general. This center works closely with the international donor coordination center.

According to the official, the control center in Stuttgart has employees from the United States and 15 other NATO countries. The control center will also manage military supplies from more than 40 countries that provide assistance to Ukraine.

Earlier it was reported that the coordination group on the issue of military assistance to Ukraine would meet once a month. The first meeting took place at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany on Tuesday.
