Tanks from Germany and Portugal soon to arrive in Ukraine

The battle tanks promised to Ukraine by Germany and Portugal will be delivered by the end of March, according to German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius.

“The 18 German Leopard 2A6 tanks and the 3 Portuguese tanks (could) all arrive in Ukraine together before the end of this month,” he said on the sidelines of an EU defence minister meeting in Sweden, adding that the state-of-the-art tanks would arrive in Ukraine together with trained crews.

Poland already supplied Ukraine with the first four Leopard 2A4 battle tanks in February. Ten more are to follow this week.
