US's Austin: Ukraine to get Abrams tanks soon

United States Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced on Tuesday that Ukraine will receive M1 Abrams tanks from his country in the near future.

Speaking at the Ukraine Defense Contact Group's meeting in Germany, Austin stressed that "the more Russia prolongs its war, the more glaring its cruelty becomes. ... So this Contact Group has stepped up with donations ... And those defensive systems will continue to protect Ukraine's critical infrastructure, including grain and energy supplies." He went on to urge the group to send air defense systems and ammunition to Ukraine and help that country "deter future Russian aggression and defend its sovereign territory."

'Our commitment to Ukraine isn't just for the duration of one campaign. It's a commitment to long-term security in Europe and beyond. And it's a commitment to our shared values of freedom and sovereignty," he concluded.
