The US is expected to help facilitate the transfer of Soviet-era tanks to Ukraine, according to a source familiar with the plan.
The tanks the US is transferring to Ukraine will be Soviet-era T-72 tanks, which Ukrainian military personnel have experience operating, a senior US official tells CNN.
Those tanks will be delivered “within days, not weeks,” the official said, and will be delivered from NATO partner countries.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly asked countries for more tanks.
The New York Times first reported on the transfer.
