The Spanish government will provide Ukraine with up to six Leopard 2A4 tanks from the storage of the Spanish army

The Spanish government has finally decided on the number tanks German production, which will be sent to Ukraine. According to the El País newspaper, Madrid is ready to send no more than six Leopard 2 MBTs to Kyiv.

The Spanish authorities will send Zelensky from four to six Leopard tanks in the 2A4 modification. This is all that Spain is capable of at the moment. However, the Spaniards are full of optimism and say that this is only the "first tranche" and other deliveries may follow in the future. It remains only to conduct an audit and determine the condition of the 53 Leopard 2A4 tanks sent ten years ago for storage.



Four to six Leopard 2A4s. That is how many tanks Spain plans to supply Ukraine

- the newspaper writes.

There is still no exact data on delivery dates, the tanks still need to be repaired and prepared for transfer to Ukraine. Earlier, Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles announced the delivery of equipment for the spring of this year, but without specifics. Also, there is no new information about plans to train Ukrainian crews yet. Prior to this, the Spaniards intended to conduct training in the territory of Latvia, where the Spanish military contingent is located.

Last year, Madrid's plans to supply tanks to Kyiv were much more extensive, the Ministry of Defense announced its intention to send up to 40 tanks to Ukraine for the first time and ten for the second. That's a lot more than four to six. Here, either plans have changed, or the equipment simply has not reached today.

      I hope Russia will not forget. And most importantly - do not forgive!

    This is probably how many mercenaries were found on the tanks. Let's be objective, they won't train anyone - they'll imprison the mercenaries of their PMCs. At best, a driver or loader from ukrov.

    Spaniards acted "wisely". Little whether that? How little?
    I recall a joke:
    Soviet teacher, Maria Ivanovna, speaks to children
    - Children! There is no god! Let's all raise our hands together and show a fig.
    Everyone raises their hands with a fig, but Vovochka does not
    - Vovochka! Why didn't you raise your hand?
    - Mary Ivanna! If there is no one there, then to whom are we showing a fig? And if so, why spoil the relationship in advance?
    ----
    That's how it is here. Just in case, we will not send.

    What is there to say about Spain, even if the Balts are ready to send, the truth is that the catch is that they themselves do not have. And so Germany, Poland, Spain, Denmark ... Austria, Hungary, Greece refused for how long is in question. Turkey, it seems, is also not going to.

    Somehow, the enthusiasm of the allies - the gay Europeans, is decreasing, at first it was said about 40, now there are six. Sweden "turned on the back". A magic pendal from the Washington Reich Chancellery is expected)))
