The Ministry of Defence of Ukraine on Tuesday confirmed the country had received Challenger 2 tanks from Great Britain.
Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov published a video of the tanks on his official Twitter account.
“It was a pleasure to take the first Ukrainian Challenger 2 MBT for a spin. Such tanks, supplied by the United Kingdom, have recently arrived in our country. These fantastic machines will soon begin their combat missions” , he said.
The UK government announced in January 2023 it would deliver 14 Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine.
The Ukrainian servicemembers trained to run the tanks have already returned to the country.
