The goal is to coordinate the delivery of heavy tanks and modern air defense systems. For example, United Kingdom has confirmed the shipment of 14 Challenger 2 heavy tanks and Poland He also promised to send 14 tanks, but German-made Leopard 2, if Berlin authorizes their re-export to Ukraine.

To conclude, Stoltenberg warned that they are short on time. “The situation is urgent. Ukraine needs more support. It is a fight for our values. Democracy must prevail over tyranny.”.
