(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Canada and its allies have agreed on approaches to transfer modern military equipment to Ukraine and maintain it in good condition.
According to an Ukrinform correspondent, Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand said this on her twitter account.
'I met my colleagues from Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Germany and Sweden to talk about our donations of equipment to Ukraine, such as Leopard 2 tanks,' Anand said.
She added that 'supporting Ukraine, we will continue to work together on training, spare parts and ammunition.'
Canada announced last week that it would join an international 'tank coalition' and transfer four Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. Canada also agreed to buy the NASAMS air defense system and 200 armored vehicles for Ukraine.
At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the Ukrainian army needs from 300 to 500 tanks to carry out a counteroffensive against Russian troops.
