The Spanish Ministry of Defense may transfer ten Leopard 2A4 tanks and 20 M113 armored personnel carriers to Ukraine. This is reported by the publication Infodefensa, citing informed sources. According to the publication, the mentioned weapons are currently mothballed in warehouses and are not used by the armed forces of Spain.
The publication notes that earlier Spain sent Ukraine only defensive weapons and ammunition.
The publication describes the scheme for the transfer of weapons to Kyiv as follows. After the tanks and armored personnel carriers become Ukrainian property, the Ukrainian government will have to finance their modernization in Spain at the expense of the European Peace Support Fund (FEAP). To do this, Ukraine will need to sign a contract with Spanish companies. The last stage involves the transfer of military equipment to the front.
The cost of sending these weapons to Ukraine could be from $5 million to $15 million. Under such a scheme, weapons will not be delivered to Ukraine until the end of 2022.
