At the eighth Rammstein meeting on January 20, the discussion on the transfer of fighters received a new impetus. However, first of all, Ukraine needs to get heavy tanks.
Military analyst Oleksiy Hetman told about this forChannel 24. He emphasized that no one is saying that the Rammstein summit was negative.
“Perhaps, we had too high expectations. We waited longer than what happened there. We were given a lot of weapons, but this is for our protection. It will be very difficult to attack without tanks,” Hetman said.

It is possible to get helicopters
According to the analyst, if our dream of getting modern powerful aircraft to achieve an advantage in the air comes true, this will allow us to quickly liberate territories. However, as Hetman noted, this will be possible immediately after they decide to supply heavy equipment, namely tanks.
I would very much like to get attack helicopters Apache from UK. There have already been such conversations. Three – four helicopters are capable of destroying more than fifty enemy equipment. This helicopter has powerful means for fixing equipment on the battlefield,” Hetman said.
He noted that the West did not refuse to provide tanks. The decision was put on hold. According to Hetman, there are nuances that we do not know.
“We trust our people who are working on this and hope that we will get Abrams and Leopard. Today we can defend ourselves by the fact that we were granted, but we are not capable of attacking powerfully,” the analyst believes.
