North Macedonia to donate tanks to Ukraine

The Government of North Macedonia adopted a decision to donate Soviet-era tanks to Ukraine to fight Russian aggression.

The Ministry of Defence of North Macedonia said Ukraine will receive tanks belonging to the country's tank battalion which is in the process of being upgraded, Reuters informs.

"Taking into account this situation and the requirements of the Ukrainian defence ministry, the government has decided that a certain quantity of these (tank) capacities will be donated to Ukraine, in line with its needs," the statement said.

The ministry did not specify the number of tanks, but it said they belonged to the so called third generation of main battle tanks from the 1970s and 1980s that have composite armour and computer-stabilised firing control systems.

As reported, on July 28, the Government of Latvia supported the proposal of the country’s Ministry of Defence to provide additional military support to Ukraine.
