Ukraine: Leopard tanks to be used in April or May

Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov (pictured) stated on Wednesday that his country's forces are likely to start using the Leopard tanks it received from its Western allies in a counteroffensive against Russia that will start in either April or May.

Speaking to Estonian broadcaster ERR, Reznikov said the counteroffensive "is already planned in several directions." He stressed the army's general staff is being careful in choosing the right moment for the counteroffensive to begin as a lot depends on springtime weather conditions.

Earlier in the day, Spain confirmed it will send six Leopard 2 tanks after Easter.
