The Ukrainian armed units lost a third of its Leopard tanks, said Colonel Markus Reisner of the Austrian armed forces, Die Welt wrote on October 1.
According to the Austrian military officer, the effectiveness of Leopard 2 tanks turned out to be “less significant” than expected.
“Of the approximately 90 tanks of this type delivered, at least a third were destroyed or damaged,” Die Welt quoted Reisner as saying.
The colonel’s statement implies that the West has “only partially” fulfilled its promises to deliver military equipment to Ukraine.
The counteroffensive of the Ukrainian armed units in the South Donetsk, Artemovsk and Zaporozhye directions, which began on June 4, 2023, failed.
