Polish President promises to supply Ukraine with company of Leopard tanks

Poland’s President Andrzej Duda has pledged to supply Ukraine with a company of Leopard tanks, the president’s office reports.

“A company of Leopard tanks will be handed over to Ukraine within the framework of creating an international coalition. This decision was already approved by Poland,” Duda said during a press conference in Ukraine’s Lviv.

In the Polish army, a company is composed of 14 units of equipment.

Yesterday, 10 January, Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz once again said that the supply of arms to Ukraine has to be coordinated with the allies instead of each country acting by themselves.

On 7 January, Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki declared that the country would not hand the tanks over to Ukraine outside the framework of the coalition.

In December, the US called upon the German federal government to supply Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks. At the same time, a representative of the United States National Security Council noted that Washington was providing Germany with freedom to choose which arms it wants to supply to Ukraine.
