Portugal confirmed it would send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, Prime Minister Antonio Costa told Diario de Noticias on Feb. 4.

The Portuguese government is also working with Germany to get parts to fix decommissioned combat vehicles, Costa said.

Portugal is reportedly preparing to give Ukraine four Leopard 2 tanks, Correio de Manha reported on Jan. 25, citing unnamed government sources.

According to the source, Portugal holds 37 Leopard 2 tanks in stock, of which 12 are fully operational. Germany’s decision also paves the way for other countries to supply Ukraine with their Leopard tanks.

While Poland has already announced the delivery of a company of Leopard tanks to Ukraine, other nations, including Finland, the Netherlands, and Denmark, have expressed their readiness to do the same.

At the Ramstein-8 summit on Jan 20, 12 countries reportedly agreed to give Ukraine around 100 German-made Leopard 2 tanks. As tanks are produced in Germany, the country’s approval is needed for their delivery.

How many tanks does Russia really have?
