Spain confirms that Leopard 2 will come to Ukraine after Easter

Mar 29, 2023

Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles confirmed at a meeting of the Spanish Congress of Deputies (lower house of parliament) on Wednesday that the first six Leopard 2A4 battle tanks will be sent to Ukraine after Easter.

This was reported by Publico.

According to Robles, the six Leopard 2s that are to arrive in Ukraine in the near future are currently "undergoing testing to ensure their proper operation." Four more tanks will be repaired and fired later.


The Spanish Defense Minister emphasized that this will allow us to continue to help the Ukrainian people, who are being brutally killed so that they can defend themselves against a more than unjust attack.

She also rejected calls from the left-wing Podemos party to stop military aid to Ukraine in order to bring the war to a speedy end.

"No matter how much some people insist on sending a certain message, we must be very clear: with these supplies, we are not only not escalating the conflict, but we are providing the country and the Ukrainian people with the means to continue to defend themselves against this illegitimate and illegal aggression," Robles said.
