The Pentagon will send main battle tanks to Ukraine to help in the war with Russia

WASHINGTON – The Biden administration plans to send more than 30 of its frontline battle tanks to Ukraine, a move intended to resolve Germany’s reluctance to supply its own battle tank to bolster Ukrainian forces in the fight against Russia, according to a US official.

Modern, capable tanks are seen as crucial to Ukraine’s ability to withstand an expected spring offensive by Russian forces and help Ukrainians retake parts of their country seized during the invasion ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Ukrainians operate Russian and Soviet tanks. Western tanks would offer them vehicles with more firepower, mobility, and armor.

The Pentagon has refused to send the tanks, citing the high maintenance and need for jet fuel for its engine. Germany’s Leopard tank, used by several European allies, runs on more readily available diesel fuel.
