But the Ukrainian Armed Forces will not receive a batch of Cypriot T-80U tanks, according to the Mash channel, the war in Israel intervened in the matter. As expected, Israel would supply Merkava Mk.3 tanks to Cyprus, while Cyprus would transfer 82 T-80U tanks to Kyiv. After the Hamas attack, Israel removed the tanks it had promised to the Cypriots from storage, so the deal fell through. Now Cyprus is left without Israeli tanks, and Kyiv - without Cypriot ones.
