Poland hands over 10 more Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine

Training of Ukrainian troops on Leopard 2 tanks completed in Poland , and Ukraine received the remaining 10 of the 14 promised vehicles from the Polish side. This was announced at a briefing on Thursday by Deputy Prime Minister of National Defense of Poland Mariusz Blaszczak.

«We support Ukraine within the framework of the international coalition. In addition to 14 Polish Leopard tanks, this battalion also has four tanks from Canada, eight tanks from Norway, and six — from Spain», — the minister noted.

He added that he was negotiating with his Spanish counterpart Margarita Robles on the possible provision of more tanks to Ukraine — «maybe four more».

The Polish minister also recalled the idea of ​​establishing a Leopard 2 tank maintenance center in Poland, which he is discussing with Germany.

& #171;The problem is to provide spare parts for these tanks. 20 years ago, the production of these parts ceased, but we are ready to resume this production. Of course, in cooperation with the Germans, we are conducting a dialogue about the fact that the Leopard tanks that have been or will be delivered to Ukraine are serviced and repaired in Poland», — Blaszczak explained.

  • Poland will send 10 Leopard tanks to Ukraine this week.
