The Czech Republic has sent Ukraine tens of T-72 tanks and armoured personnel carriers by train in order to help its army defend against Russian attacks, new site Echo24 reported on Tuesday. Defence Minister Jana Černochová confirmed that arms are being sent to Ukraine, but didn’t specify which.
The materiel was sent as a gift to Ukraine after an agreement among NATO allies. The move marks the first time a foreign country has provided tanks to Ukraine, if confirmed.
