Britain to send Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine

According to the statement made by the British Prime Minister’s Office, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak had a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

During the meeting, where the latest situation of the war in Ukraine was discussed, Rishi and Zelenskiy agreed on the acceleration of global military and diplomatic support to Ukraine. Prime Minister Sunak stated that Britain will increase its country’s support to Ukraine, including the provision of Challenger 2 tanks and additional artillery systems. Sunak also stressed that he and the British government will work intensively with international partners to quickly provide the kind of support that will lead Ukraine to use its advantages, win the war against Russia and establish a lasting peace.

Zelenskiy, on the other hand, stated that he thanked Sunak for his support in the post he shared on his Twitter account after the meeting. “I thanked them for the decisions that would not only strengthen us on the battlefield but also send the right signal to other partners,” Zelenskiy said.
The main battle tank of the British army, the Challenger 2, entered the inventory in 1998. Challenger 2, which is currently undergoing processes to keep it in service until 2035, attracted attention in the Iraq War.
