Us to deliver m1 abrams battle tanks to ukraine | dw news

DW News published this video item, entitled “US to deliver M1 Abrams battle tanks to Ukraine | DW News” – below is their description.

US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that Washington would provide Ukraine with 31 Abrams battle tanks , but said the delivery could be a lengthy process.

“Delivering these tanks to the field is going to take time. Time that we’ll see and we’ll use to make sure the Ukrainians are fully prepared,” he said. Senior US officials earlier said it would take months, not weeks.

Announcing the decision in remarks at the White House, Biden said the move was not “an offensive threat to Russia.”

He said the Abrams tanks were needed to help Ukrainian forces “improve their ability to maneuver in open terrain.”
