Russia warned NATO members involved in the weapon supply to Ukraine that any arms shipments on Ukrainian territory would be “legitimate targets” for Russian forces.
Meanwhile, the US announced supplying Ukraine with 31 M1 Abrams battle tanks, one of its most powerful tanks, in the months ahead through the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. Supplying Ukraine with M1 Abrams tanks will take months and is meant to strengthen Ukraine’s long-term military capability.
Germany will supply Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks and train Ukrainian soldiers on using the tanks in Germany, said German Prime Minister Olaf Scholz on Wednesday.
