Spain, Finland to send Leopard tanks to Ukraine

Spain and Finland will send Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine, the countries’ governments said Thursday.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced he would send 10 Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine as he visited Kyiv on Thursday for the second time since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion.

Western allies are ramping up the supply of military hardware to Ukraine, as it prepares to face a potential renewed Russian onslaught this spring.

In a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Sánchez said: “You are not alone in this war. We will stand with Ukraine as long as necessary.”
