The US will send 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine – a significant blow to Russia’s continued war on its sovereign neighbor.

President Joe Biden on Thursday announced he would send the tanks, in a reversal from the US’s earlier stance that Abrams tanks were not suitable for Ukrainians.

The US will provide Ukrainians with training and supplies to operate and run the tanks, Biden said.

‘Putin expected Europe and the United State to weaken our resolve. He was wrong. He was wrong. He was wrong in the beginning and he continues to be wrong. We are united,’ said Biden.

‘These tanks are further evidence of our enduring, unflagging commitment to Ukraine and our confidence in the skill of Ukrainian forces.’
