Spain transfers 19 additional Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine

Spain announced a new aid package for Ukraine worth 1,2 billion euros. The package included missiles for the Patriot anti-aircraft missile system and 19 Leopard 2A4 tanks. This statement was made by representatives of the Spanish government, who emphasized the importance of supporting Ukraine.

According to Spanish officials, the decision to provide this assistance was taken in the context of efforts by the European Union and NATO to strengthen Ukraine's defense capabilities amid the ongoing conflict. Spain has previously provided assistance to Ukraine, but the current assistance package is one of the largest and most significant to date.

What is quite remarkable is that Spain previously refused to transfer Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine, citing the lack of these combat vehicles in its own army, but, probably under pressure from the United States and other NATO countries, changed this decision.
