Poland Sends Tanks to Ukraine

Shortly, 30 "Twardy" and 14 "Leopards" 2 will go to Ukraine

On January 27, Canadian media CTV News published an interview with Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

Poland was the first country to send tanks to Ukraine just over 6 months ago. Then it was 250 Twardy tanks. Now Poland intends to send another 60 combat tanks to Ukraine, 30 of which are upgraded Twardy PT-91. Also, Poland, which initially intended to send Leopards to Ukraine, allocated 14 Leopards 2 from its balance sheet. Minister Morawiecki stressed that it is extremely necessary to provide Ukraine with tanks since Russia still has about 15.000 of them.

"And this is why I'm a strong believer that Ukraine is going to survive as a sovereign and free nation. They are brave hearts, they fight with lion hearts, but we have to keep deliveries of the modern supplies because we know how big a behemoth type of superpower attacked Ukraine on the 24th of February last year. So it's our duty, our responsibility to support Ukraine in those very dark times," Mateusz Morawiecki.

Minister Morawiecki added that Polish military specialists will continue to train Ukrainian soldiers.
