Canada Considering Sending Four Leopard Tanks To Ukraine - Media

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Canada is considering sending four Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

That's according to cbc news , which refers to its sources, Ukrinform reports.

The Canadian government could announce the donation of tanks as early as Thursday, the sources said.

'One source said Canada is likely to send Ukraine the A4 variant of the tank - the oldest in the Canadian military's inventory. Canada bought the A4s from the Netherlands during the Afghan war,' the report said.

Earlier on Wednesday, January 25, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government will provide more support to Ukraine but declined to join allies in announcing a donation of German-made tanks to fend off Russian forces.

'I won't be making an announcement today but I can tell you we're looking very, very closely at what more we can do to support Ukraine,' he said when asked about the possibility of Canada joining a 'tank coalition.'
