Warsaw is ready to give Kyiv only a few Leopard tanks.

Ukraine can receive only a symbolic number of Leopard tanks from Poland, Jakub Kumoch, head of the international policy bureau of the Office of the President of Poland, said.

Earlier it was reported that Poland decided to supply Kyiv with Leopard 2 tanks.

“The case is under consideration – the proposal itself for Poland to take part in a certain coalition of countries that have Leopards. There is no talk, this is absolute misinformation, about the transfer of all Leopards or a large number of Leopards, but (it is said) about symbolic support and participation in the coalition several countries,” Kumoh said.

He noted that if Poland hands over Leopard tanks to Ukraine, then their number cannot be measured in dozens.

“To say that Poland will hand over several tens or hundreds of tanks is absurd, the creation of an alternative reality,” a representative of the presidential office said

Ukraine is interested in a group of Western countries handing over to them a certain limited number of this type of tanks. Poland has them, Poland can become part of the coalition, but it will not do anything on its own,” Kumoh added.

The Polish Army has 126 Leopard 2A4 tanks and 105 Leopard 2A5 tanks. In the spring, Poland delivered several hundred T-72 tanks to Ukraine.
