The United States had previously stressed that it did not consider it sensible to deliver Abrams tanks to Ukraine for practical reasons. According to the US media, 30-50 tanks could now be promised.

According to various US media reports, the United States now wants to deliver Abrams main battle tanks to Ukraine. The New York Times reported this, citing experts. According to the newspaper, there could be an official confirmation already this Wednesday. It could be anywhere from 30 to 50 tanks, the newspaper wrote.

The Wall Street Journal previously reported that a US announcement of a commitment to “a larger number” of M1 Abrams could come later this week. According to this, US President Joe Biden is said to have promised Foreign Minister Olaf Scholz in a phone call last week that he would control such delivery. Neither the White House nor the Pentagon officially confirmed the reports.

Shortly before, word broke in coalition circles that the federal government, after weeks of back and forth, would hand over German Leopard 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine and would also want to allow alliance partners to do the same. The Foreign Ministry has not yet ruled on the matter. Recently there were reports that Foreign Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) had made the delivery of the Abrams tanks a condition. Berlin and Washington had rejected these reports. The United States had previously stressed that it did not consider the provision of the Abrams tank sensible for practical reasons. dpa
