Ukraine demanded a large number of state-of-the-art tanks from its allies
Considering Ukraine’s demand for modern tanks, America and Germany indicated to send some of their tanks.
The Russian army has already advanced to Bakhmut, Vuhledar and elsewhere.
Kyiv, Even after 11 months of war, Ukraine has still not been able to withdraw its four states from Russia. In such a situation, to repel Russia, Ukraine demanded a large number of advanced tanks (Advance Tanks) from its allies. President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Tuesday that Kyiv needed allies to decide whether or not to defend the country against Russia in the face of growing Russian military aggression, according to a report by the Reuters news agency.
At the same time, given Ukraine’s demand for modern tanks, America and Germany have indicated that they are sending some of their tanks. According to the report, Germany will send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, while the United States can supply Abrams tanks. However, Zelensky said the problem was not 5, 10 or 15 tanks, as Ukraine’s needs are greater. Zelensky said in his nightly video address that this discussion of tank needs should end with decisions.
A decision must be made on the real strengthening of Ukraine’s defense against Russia. He said the allies have the required number of tanks. Significantly, since the start of the war, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has refrained from making such important decisions that could motivate Russia to escalate the war. Germany believes that such measures can bring NATO’s confrontation with Russia closer.
Ukraine is also claiming the tank because it believes Russia is developing new aggressive attack plans, signs of which are already visible in Ukraine’s Donbass region. Zelensky pointed out that Russian forces have already made advances in Bakhmut and Vuhledar and elsewhere. Fighting around the eastern town of Bakhmut has intensified in recent weeks, with Russia claiming several successes in its campaign there.
