Spain plans to transfer Ukraine six of ten promised Leopard tanks in the coming days, Spanish Foreign Affair Minister José Manuel Albares told Funke news on April 21.

"After the second will follow with four more tanks," Tagesschau quoted him as saying.

The minister pledged Spain's support for Ukraine as long as it takes.

This includes humanitarian aid, refugee admissions, and weapons supply," he said.

Dozens of Ukrainian soldiers completed a four-week-long training on the Leopard 2A4 tanks in Spain on March 13.
