Portugal has provided Ukraine with three promised Leopard 2A6 tanks, the Portuguese Defense Ministry reported on Twitter on March 28.

"The tanks have already been delivered to Ukraine, as agreed with our partners. Portugal continues to support Ukraine's resistance to Russia's illegal invasion," the message reads.

The tank coalition of Ukrainian allies continues to grow.

Kyiv just received 18 Leopard 2 tanks and around 40 Marder infantry armored vehicles from Germany.
