Modern Leopard tanks to Ukraine
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, long discussions and discussions have continued about the supply of Western Leopard tanks to Ukraine. Polish President Andrzej Duda, while on a visit to Lviv, said that his country was ready to provide the Armed Forces with Leopard 2 tanks. After public pressure on the German chancellor, who always found an excuse not to transfer tanks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, he agreed to this and allowed the re-export of tanks. Other European states also spoke about their readiness to transfer this equipment.
Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that Ukraine would receive 120-140 Western tanks in the first wave of assistance.
