Spain has announced the number of Leopard 2 tanks that can be provided to Ukraine

After Germany gave the green light to supply its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, a number of partners expressed their desire to provide our appropriate assistance to the country. Among them is Spain.

After the decision of Berlin, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius convened a meeting of 6 countries that have Leopard tanks in service. Among those present was Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles, who said that Madrid could provide Ukraine with more than fifty tanks.

How many tanks Ukraine can get from Spain

Margarita Robles said that Spain is ready to provide Ukraine with German tanks and called on NATO allies who have this equipment in service to do the same. According to the head of the Spanish defense department, Madrid can transfer 53 Leopard 2 A4 tanks to Ukraine. However, as noted by the Minister, not all of them, unfortunately, are serviceable.

Some of them cannot be used, we are going to analyze which ones can be converted, – Robles clarified.

Spain stores German tanks at a military base in Zaragoza.

The Spanish Minister of Defense stressed that ending the war is a clear goal of the allies. However, to maintain peace, coordinated work is needed to support our state.
