The Ukrainian military received four Leopard 2 tanks from Poland at their disposal. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in Telegram on Friday, February 24.
“A year ago, tanks drove into Ukraine to deprive Ukrainians of their freedom. Tanks also arrived in Ukraine today, however, in order to protect freedom. The first four Leopard 2 tanks provided by partners were welcomed together with Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki,” Shmyhal wrote.
The heads of government congratulated the crews of Ukrainian tankers who already have successful combat experience.
“Under the leadership of the President of Ukraine, we continue to expand the tank coalition in order to return freedom to all Ukrainian territories,” the prime minister added.
