STORY: According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, speed and numbers are the most important factors in supplying tanks to his country’s war effort. A tank force would have to be set up so that tyranny no longer had a chance, Zelenskyj said in his evening video address on Wednesday. Germany and other countries are strengthening Ukraine in its fight against Russia by supplying main battle tanks. The federal government promised 14 Leopard 2-A6 main battle tanks on Wednesday and gave other countries, such as Poland, permission to supply their own Leopard tanks to Ukraine. And Spain, Finland and the Netherlands also announced that they wanted to take part in the Leopard deliveries with their own devices. Russian troops invaded neighboring Ukraine on February 24, 2022. A bloody battle has been raging ever since, in which it is estimated that far more than 100,000 people have already been killed. Russia has occupied Ukrainian territories in the south and east of the country. The front lines, which stretch more than 1,000 kilometers, have been largely frozen for about two months with heavy casualties on both sides.
