Great Britain hopes to hand over Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine at the end of March.
This is reported by Reuters.
"We plan that it will be at the end of March," said the Minister of Defense Procurement of Britain, Alex Chockle, when he was asked when the tanks would arrive in Ukraine.
According to him, by this time the Ukrainian military will undergo intensive training on the operation and maintenance of tanks.
We will remind, on January 14, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak officially confirmed in a telephone conversation with President Volodymyr Zelensky that he will provide Ukraine with Challenger 2 tanks, as well as additional artillery systems.
Ukrainian crews should start training on Challenger 2 tanks in Britain in the near future. About 60 military personnel will take part in the training course.
