Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany announces 110 Leopard 1 tanks “soon” in Ukraine

On 24 May, Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Oleksiy Makeiev posted a short tweet announcing the transfer of 110 German-made Leopard 1 tanks to Ukraine.

“110 [Leopard] 1A5. Soon,” the Ambassador wrote on Twitter:

In April, Denmark planned to send up to 100 Leopard 1 main battle tanks to Ukraine, and announced that Ukraine would receive the first Leopard 1s “before summer.” In February, Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands published a joint statement promising to pool funds to restore at least 100 old Leopard 1 tanks from industry stocks and supply them to Ukraine.
