Warsaw/Kyiv – Poland handed over the remaining ten of the promised German-made Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. At the same time, Ukrainian soldiers completed their training in Poland. Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak told the Polish television TVP Info. According to the minister's earlier statement, the first Leopard tanks arrived in Ukraine from Poland already in February.
Blaszczak also reminded that the battalion, which includes 14 Polish tanks, also includes four armored vehicles from Canada, eight tanks from Norway and six from Spain. He added that he is currently in talks with his Spanish colleague Margarita Robles and is trying to convince her that Madrid should supply Ukraine with four more machines. Germany finally allowed the re-export of its Leopard tanks to Ukraine in January of this year after pressure from the allies. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi, according to the onet.pl portal, expects that his country will receive a hundred of these machines from 12 countries.
