This year, Sweden handed over 10 Strv 122 tanks to Ukraine and provided training for their crews. The combat vehicles are already on the battlefield. This was reported by Matsa Ludwig, head of the Operations Division of the Swedish Army Staff.
"We gave them everything we could, good material and good knowledge. Now we wish them all the best in the liberation of their country," the statement reads.
It is noted that for more than 30 years these tanks formed the basis of Swedish mechanized brigades. The Ukrainian army now has ten of these tanks at its disposal to fight for the liberation of their country, along with crews trained by the Swedish army.
