Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said Warsaw is ready to open a service center for the repair of Leopard 2 tanks sent to Ukraine. At the same time, Germany should start producing spare parts for military vehicles, he told a briefing for reporters.
We are ready to launch a service center in Poland, which will deal with the repair and maintenance of Leopard tanks delivered to Ukraine
He clarified that it is proposed to use the Bumar-Labendy factory area in Gliwice for the repair shop, where the necessary conditions are met. The minister clarified that the shortage of spare parts is an important problem and that only the German defense industry can solve it. Blaschak added that he planned to discuss the issue at a meeting in Stockholm with German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius.
I expect it will reach a turning point and Minister Pistorius will bring the German defense industry to the point where it will start producing spare parts
stressed the minister.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine requested Mk.20 Rockeye cluster bombs from the United States. Prohibited ammunition could be included in the new military aid package along with 155mm artillery shells, Reuters reports. The probability that banned bombs will appear at the disposal of the Ukrainian army is quite high.
