Ukraine Received Portuguese and German “Leopard 2”

On March 27, the MoD of Ukraine announced the receipt of combat tanks

A significant event for the defence of Ukraine: the state received Leopards from Portugal and Germany.

"3 Leopard 2A6 tanks promised by Portugal are already in Ukraine. They have been delivered in accordance with the agreement with our partners. Portugal continues to support Ukrainian resistance to the illegal invasion of Russia," the Ministry of defence of Ukraine.

It was previously reported that Portugal has 37 Leopards on its balance sheet, most of which can be delivered to Ukraine after repair. It is also likely that some of the received tanks came for spare parts.

On the same day, the Ministry of defence of Ukraine announced the arrival of 18 units of Leopard 2 from Germany. Another 178 Leopard 1s are expected in Germany's cooperation with Denmark and the Netherlands.

Earlier, Ukraine received Leopard 2 from Poland, Challenger 2 from Great Britain and expects Abrams from the United States.
