As part of the first batch of aid, Ukraine should receive 120-140 modern Western tanks from the allies, the Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba said at a briefing, reported from RBC-Ukraine.

He noted that, at present, the tank coalition has 12 members. However, according to Kuleba, it is too early to name all the coalition's countries and their practical assistance, because some still have to make formal decisions regarding their internal procedures.

"I can only note that in the first wave, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive from 120 to 140 units of modern tanks of Western models. These are Leopard 2, Challenger 2 and M1 Abrams. And we really count on Leclerc," he said.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs added that Ukraine continues to work both on expanding the composition of the tank coalition and on increasing assistance from the existing participants.
