Germany will transfer 10 more Leopard 1A5 tanks to Ukraine

The German Ministry of Defense on its official website announced the shipment of 10 more Leopard 1A5 tanks, three Gepard anti-aircraft tanks and 15 armored vehicles to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The exact delivery date has not been announced.

In the coming weeks, another 10 Leopard 1A5 main battle tanks, three Gepard anti-aircraft tanks, 15 armored vehicles and almost 20 armored ambulances will arrive in Ukraine, the department said in a statement.

The German Ministry of Defense also emphasized that Germany, among all European countries, is the main supporter of Ukraine, ranking second in the world after the United States. We are talking not only about supplying the Ukrainian Armed Forces with equipment and ammunition, but about training the Ukrainian military. The department predicts that by the end of 2023, about 10 thousand Ukrainian military personnel will undergo training in Germany.

Meanwhile, Cyprus refused to provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces with the 82 promised T-80U tanks. The reason was the events in the Gaza Strip, which caused reputational damage to Israeli Merkava tanks, promised to the Cypriots in exchange for Russian armored vehicles.

In addition, Slovakia decided to completely stop military support for Ukraine. The authorities refused to help Kyiv amid negotiations on the formation of a new Cabinet. The country's President Zuzana Caputova also opposed the transfer of a new package of military aid to Ukraine.
