The British and the Polish are on the move and confirmed that a three-way deal has gone through to provide Ukraine with Soviet-designed T-72 tanks to Ukraine. This comes after weeks of speculation that the two countries were working on a deal brokered by the United States as a senior defense official said that T-72 tanks were going to be delivered “within days, not weeks.”
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has confirmed the transfer after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed that the United Kingdom would be transferring Challenger II Tanks to Poland to replace the T-72s.
“We’re also looking more to what we can to do backfill in countries such as Poland, who may want to send heavier weaponry to defend… to help defend the Ukrainians,” Johnson said cautiously.
“We are looking at sending tanks to Poland to help them as they send some of their T72s to Ukraine,” Johnson affirmed.
