Military expert Aleksey Getman, on Channel 24, noted that the advantage of getting Leopards is that they are located in continental Europe. Unlike, for example, the British Challenger, which have yet to figure out how to deliver to Ukraine. In addition, it will take more time.

“If a decision is made today (January 20 – Channel 24), in particular, regarding supplies and logistics, then these will not even be weeks, but days. They can just get there by rail,” the military expert suggested.
