Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki confirmed this Friday (27) the country’s plan to supply 60 tanks to Ukraine.
Cited by the newspaper Rzeczpospolita, the Polish prime minister clarified that there are 14 German-made Leopard-2 combat vehicles and 30 PT-91 tanks, in addition to other modernized vehicles.
“The Polish army sent 250 tanks (to Kiev) six months ago. At the moment, we are ready to send 60 of our modernized tanks, 30 of them are PT-91s. And besides these tanks, there are 14 Leopard-2 tanks,” he specified. Morawiecki.
Morawiecki expressed satisfaction that Poland was able to “convince allies and partners in Western Europe that they should be much more active in supporting Ukraine”, commenting on Germany’s recent decision to supply Leopard-2 tanks to the Ukrainian government and to agree with the transfer of these combat vehicles to other countries.
Germany confirmed last Wednesday (25) that it will supply Ukraine with Leopard-2 tanks, a decision that Berlin has been reluctant to adopt for months. The Russian embassy in Berlin declared that the move to transfer tanks to Kiev will take the conflict to a new level of confrontation.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said Thursday that 12 countries had joined what he called a “coalition of tanks” to help Ukraine fight Russia.
