Ukraine will soon start receiving heavy battle tanks from the U.S. and Germany after the two countries reversed their position on sending more advanced weaponry to fend off Russian attacks. Ukraine has been pleading with the U.S. and NATO allies for months to supply them with heavy duty tanks as it tries to retake territories being occupied by Russia and fighting along the front lines of those areas escalates.
The U.S will send Ukraine 31 of its Abrams tanks, one of the most powerful in the world and the main battle tank for the American military. President Joe Biden’s announcement came the same day as German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Germany would send 14 of its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine and allow other European nations to send theirs.
