Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov described Western tanks for Ukraine as an “iron fist” for breaking through the Russian defence lines and liberating the occupied territories.

Quote: “We will use them as a kind of metal fist, or iron fist, to break through our enemy’s defence line.”
Details: Reznikov added that Ukraine has to continue a counter offensive campaign on different fronts to liberate temporarily occupied territories.
In addition, Reznikov said Ukraine’s “wish list” includes Western jet fighters, although the priority for Ukraine is air defence systems.
Quote: “We have to close our skies, protect our skies. That’s the number one priority. Thereafter, we need to get more combat vehicles, tanks, artillery systems, UAVs and so on. We have the people, but we need the weapons.”
