Western partner countries have promised to send a total of 321 heavy tanks to Ukraine.
The relevant statement was made by Ambassador of Ukraine to the French Republic Vadym Omelchenko….
“As of today, many countries have officially confirmed their consent to deliver 321 heavy tanks to Ukraine,” Omelchenko said.
“We need this help as soon as possible, but some [countries] need to carry out maintenance works, others need to solve logistics issues, and still others are waiting to receive tanks in exchange for those they are handing over to Ukraine,” Omelchenko noted.
A reminder that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated earlier that the Ukrainian Army needed 300 to 500 tanks to carry out a counteroffensive against Russian troops.
