Ukraine is asking the West for modern tanks to help Ukrainian forces make rapid progress in the northeast of the country and conquer more territory.
M1 Abrams & Leopard To Ukraine
Modern tanks are a top priority for Kyiv as its forces continue to make progress in the Donbas region. Ukraine’s request has gained pace after Putin announced a partial mobilization of reservists. Ukrainian military experts believe the tanks will bolster Kyiv’s counteroffensive against the Russians.
Ukraine has its eye on the advanced American M-1 Abrams and the German Leopard tanks. However, both the U.S. and Germany have been reluctant to equip Ukraine with modern main battle tanks.
