Polish defense holding PGZ and Ukraine’s state-owned defense production conglomerate UkrOboronProm have jointly created a repair shop for the T-64 models, but the cooperation could extend to T-72 and PT-91.

The possibility of longer-term cooperation to maintain Leopard 2 tanks is also being considered, according to the press release.

"This visit to Warsaw, all our negotiations today can really be called victorious," wrote Zelensky on Telegram.
