KYIV. Feb 23 (Interfax-Ukraine) – President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has received assurances from Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez regarding the supply of Leopard tanks.

Sánchez, in turn, confirmed that “Spain will provide six Leopard A4 tanks.” “In the coming weeks and months, we will raise this figure to ten,” he said. “We will provide this assistance as soon as possible,” he also said.

“I thanked Spain for the significant defense support, including the supply of air defense systems, which will enhance the ability to protect the skies. You really help save the lives of Ukrainians,” Zelenskyy said.
