Following the successive moves by European countries and the US regarding tank support for Ukraine, a threatening statement came from the Kremlin. In a statement made by the Kremlin, it was said, “We consider the delivery of weapons, including tanks, to Ukraine by the US and some European countries as direct intervention in the conflict.
There was an important development yesterday as the year in the war between Russia and Ukraine came to a close. It was reported that the US and Germany are planning to send tanks to Ukraine after months of discussions. While the US was expected to publicly announce that it would send dozens of M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, it was announced that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz agreed to send at least 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.
Kremlin reacted harshly to the tank shipments of Western countries to Ukraine. “We consider the delivery of arms, including tanks, by the US and some European countries to Ukraine as direct involvement in the conflict,” the Kremlin said in a statement.
“The US and NATO are participating in the war in Ukraine and want to prolong it,” Patrushev, the head of the Russian Security Council, said.
