Ukraine will receive tanks
In a commentary to Voice of America journalist Mikhail Komadovsky, Podolyak said that Britain and Poland had already decided to transfer tanks to Ukraine.
It is certain. Decisions have already been made in essence, – said the adviser to the head of the OP.
However, according to him, they have not yet agreed on exactly how many tanks will be transferred.
“Obviously, the logic of war leads to the fact that we will receive all the necessary weapons,” Podolyak summed up.
Ukraine can get Leopard tanks: briefly
- On January 11, Polish President Andrzej Duda paid a visit to Lviv, where he met with President Volodymyr Zelensky.
- Duda announced the delivery of a company of Leopard tanks. We are talking about 14 units. The speaker of the Polish government, Piotr Muller, said that such a decision should “force other countries to do the same.”
- Military expert Roman Svitan noted that after receiving the Leopard tanks, Ukraine will have a powerful offensive weapon.
- Germany, despite the position of Poland, refuses to supply them to Ukraine
- As military expert and editor-in-chief of Defense Express Oleg Katkov noted, Leopard 2 is a supercar, an icon of tank building. In terms of its effectiveness, it is not inferior to Abrams.
- This is a tank that was created in order to resist the army of the Soviet Union, taking into account that technique. He copes very well with the T-72, T-90, T-80 and others. In addition, the Leopard has a much better cannon that fires more accurately and at greater distances.
- Katkov noted that he can pierce Soviet equipment with Western shells in any projection at all real combat distances. Moreover, even the Leopard 2 A4 of the 90s has thermal imagers and a digital fire control system.
