US Abrams tanks ‘entering Ukraine soon’ says US Defense Secretary

Ramstein Air Base (Germany) (AFP) – Speaking at the Ramstein Air Base, Germany, US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin says American M1 Abrams tanks “will be entering Ukraine soon.” The tanks will be armed with controversial armour-busting depleted uranium rounds. Representatives of dozens of countries that support Kyiv are meeting in Germany to discuss new aid for Ukraine ahead of an address to the UN General Assembly by President Volodymyr Zelensky. Washington had promised the 31 tanks to Kyiv in early 2023, part of more than $43 billion in security assistance pledged by the United States since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
