“I am grateful to my German and Polish colleagues, Boris Pistorius and Mariusz Błaszczak, for their unwavering support for Ukraine. Today, we signed the Letter of Intent for the establishment of a Maintenance and Service Center in Poland for Ukraine’s Leopard 2 main battle tanks. It will contribute to the strengthening of our cooperation and the capabilities of Ukrainian defenders.”

“Ukrainian soldiers are skilled at defending their country,” the minister said.
“Modern Western technology will result in Moscow’s defeat. The sooner it happens, the sooner peace will come.
