On Jan. 20, defense leaders from around the world met at Ramstein Air Base to discuss aid to Ukraine. Leaders were split on sending tanks to the country.

  • Despite the tanks being bought and owned by countries such as Poland, Spain and Finland, because Germany manufactured them, it has the right to veto where the tanks are exported to, Luke Coffey, senior fellow for national security and defense at the Hudson Institute, explained.
  • Sending tanks to Ukraine is important now because they will help Ukraine with maneuver warfare and taking back territory from Russia, he said.
  • The U.S. is sending Ukraine another $2.5 billion in aid which includes long-range rocket systems, more artillery rounds and infantry fighting vehicles, according to Coffey.
