Poland Ready to Set up a Hub to Repair Leopard Tanks Sent to Ukraine

Tuesday, 7 March 2023

Poland is ready to set up a maintenance hub for Leopard tanks transferred to Ukraine, Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said on Tuesday.

Błaszczak expects his German counterpart Boris Pistorius to convince the country's industry to deliver spare parts for older-type Leopard tanks that Poland has committed to deliver to Ukraine.

"The main problem is the lack of spare parts. I hope for a breakthrough," Bloomberg cited Błaszczak.

Błaszczak also said that Poland will deliver 10 more Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine this week after handing over four last month.

Poland was the first of the Western allies to send Leopard tanks to Ukraine. Warsaw will also hand over 60 PT-91 Twardy tanks.
