Ukraine Receives New Battle Tanks From Germany and Britain

German Leopard 2 tanks

Ukraine has begun receiving the bulk of the advanced battle tanks it has been promised by its Western allies.

Germany has delivered Leopard 2 battle tanks it agreed to provide Kyiv, Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany said on Monday. And Ukraine’s defense minister, Oleksii Reznikov, said his armed forces also welcomed “a new addition to our armored units” — Challenger tanks from Britain.

It is a highly anticipated delivery of advanced equipment as Ukraine prepares for an expected spring offensive.

The German-made Leopard 2 is more advanced than the Soviet-era tanks that Ukraine has relied on in battle so far. Leopard tanks have been used by the German Army for decades and by the militaries of more than a dozen other European nations. That includes Poland, which had already delivered Leopard tanks to Kyiv after prodding its allies to provide more advanced equipment to Ukraine’s military.
