Poland had supplied Kiev forces more than 200 T-72 battle tanks and several dozen infantry fighting vehicles, Polskie Radio reported on April 29.
According to the Polish radio station, the battle tanks supplied by Poland are enough to form two brigades. There is no official information on the amount of equipment delivered.
T-72 battle tanks were put into service in 1973 in the Soviet Union. The T-72M1/M1R battle tanks which were supplied to Ukraine were built under license by Bumar-Łabędy in Poland during the 80s. Since then, the Polish tanks didn’t see any meaningful upgrade.
Like several other NATO members, Poland ramped up the delivery of heavy weapons to Kiev forces over the last few weeks.
Commenting on the issue, Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) People’s Militia Eduard Basurin said on April 29 that DPR forces haven’t yet captured any heavy weapons that were supplied by NATO from Kiev forces.
“We haven’t encountered heavy weapons yet,” he said on Channel One television. “Consequently, we haven’t yet captured the type of weapons that was supplied by NATO. That could happen in the near future.”
Basurin noted that DPR forces taking part in the ongoing Russian special military operation in Ukraine could soon face the T-72 battle tanks which were supplied to Kiev by Poland.
Poland is especially interested in the ongoing war in Ukraine. Recently, the head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), Sergey Naryshkin, said that Washington and Warsaw were planning to deploy a Polish “peacekeeping contingent” in the western part of Ukraine.
According to Naryshkin, Polish troops could enter western Ukraine under the pretext of “protecting against Russian aggression” and establish de-facto control over the region.
Maybe if the Russian air force and command decide the weather is good they might want to take out the bridges now on the big river? Be really hard to move tanks across a large body of water that extends to the black sea……….. I am sure they have had at least one person suggest it? perhaps they are warming up to the idea? Imagine if UAF in the east could not get supplied at all because there were no bridges…..they might run out of food water and ammo. Make it a little easier to take the DPR and LPR back?
Upvoted your comment to make sure the Russian air force leadership sees your comment and do the right thing. Everybody upvote this guy to help Russia!
Nobody would be that stupid as mexicunts and americunts.
We will see who is smart when Russia does absolutely nothing to disable ground navigation and logistics in UA, but M1A2sep2s arrive.
I upvoted your mama with my big… finger 👍
I voted to help my family,unlike you desperate dumbassed degenerate fascist wannabe dead! with your bio lab wet dreams ye sic mental exempt dumb fuk!
Do you want to demolish all the dams when you demolish those bridges?
Not sure why that would be required if however it were to ensure that weapons not make it east hell yes. I would destroy what ever the fuck was required to ensure my soldiers were not killed. To ensure I win. If your concern is truly for the civilians then end the war quickly. Defeat the UAF. Its not really a huge stretch to see the logic in stopping your enemy from getting supplied.
Remove the rails on the east side of the bridge or sabotage the rails so supply train gets stuck on the bridge. You get a twofer. Weapons supply and a train for future use. No need to destroy the bridge.
well to do what you suggest you would need Russia soldiers on the eastern side of every bridge? If you had that would there really be a need to do it at all? Not really thinking that one all they way through…. but that par for this war right now no big deal.
You forget that if highways are left, than M1A2s will navigate very well and their fuel behind them. Russia needs to make whole western UA into plowing so that heavy tanks can’t even move or navigate. I just don’t see how, since Russia is stuck in Donbass for 2 months.
Y sin combustible
I think Sun Tzu talked about something like this, always leave your enemy some way of retreating, because if you cut off all possible means of escape they will fight a lot better than if they still know they can run. Sun Tzu put it better, something about never standing between an army and it’s home.
I am interested in the 9 May Victory Day in Moscow. I am especially going to see which international world leaders are going to embarrass themselves by standing next to “der Fuhrer” Putin. And even more so who does not, is going to be telling about Putin s international approval or disapproval
>“der Fuhrer” Putin Top kek Ukrop propaganda is getting worse every day. Yesterday this paid troll was arguing that the 4 million people of Donbas have imagined all the shells and missiles hitting their land over the course of the 8 past years, now he’s drawing parallels between Russia and Nazi Germany. Absolutely desperate.
The dumb Pollacks are treacherous that snakes and their PM is Jew scum like Zelensky and they have declared open war on Russia. Even under international law, Poland is a direct party to aggression on the Russian Federation and Russia is obligated to attack Poland. One missile at Warsaw will get the message across.
Understand your anger. I feel same way, but better not to get things going in Poland. They are part of NATO. Deal with them within Ukraine.
Also, the native Ukrainians will realize that the Jew Zelensky sold them out if Poland takes Western Ukraine. Ukraine will never get that land back.
I think it’s time for Russia to present an alternative leader for Ukraine (pro-Russia, of course) that can maybe sway the Ukrainian Armed Forces change sides and turn the tables on the West. It’s possible!
These tanks haven’t been seen as they are still on railcars behind Lvov waiting for track repairs. Once unloaded they will reveal poor maintenance and lifespan due to long storage and absent upgrades.
It’s all bullshit. These tanks would have had to come in on rail. You mean to tell me that Russia is just going to watch that happen? So they hit most of the railways but they leave the two ones bringing arms in from Poland in tact?
I don’t know what the deal is with the bridges. As soon as the Russians approach the Dnieper, the Ukrainians will blow them up anyways.
I agree they should take out the bridges but they also might need those bridges for their own ability to cross or set up ambushes on supply trains using the bridges.. Definitely have to leave some intact.
If they disabled crossings for the Dnieper all Ukraine units east of it are in serious trouble.
I would wait … and then hit the bridges as the tanks are rolling over. That is called hitting two birds with one stone. A classic old tactic when it comes to waging war. It would also give the Kiev-junta lots of new underwater tanks which could be useful for them when they want to protect the riverbed from below the surface.
That’s a good idea, getting rid of obsolete equipment. Sadly, it’s not executed right, as we get worn off British tanks in return which is logistical mess.
Poland is dumb,russia will destroy over 3000 tanks at this rate if they even make it or not!
Nice gift but waiting for american abrams and F16. Uki soon will be the best eqipped army in europe ^^
With the worst trained servicemen. Outcome should be clear.
ROFL abrams outdated piece of junk, f-16 also outdated piece of junk ROFL. – Z –
better focus on your soviet junk that was destroyed around kiev region by ukrainians ^^
Better focus on sucking Yankee dicks after you finish licking their butts in that cheap romanian brothel you moronic gay whore.
ziotransatlantic dumbass. the ukros confirm that they have used right now over 2/3 of all their western delivered and received around 50.000 all kind of anti tank arms deliverys, also hundrets were captured by russian or donbas forces. so they lost around 35.000 anti tank arms to destroy a few hundret russian tanks and ifvs? so a ukro needs around 50 anti tank arms do destroy one russian tank or ifv? quite an embarrassing result. there are also many videos and pictures showing that some russian tanks were still intact and roadworthy, even after several hits by various anti-tank weapons, apart from external damage.
abrams is junk,underpowered junk compared to even soviet tanks,f16 is better than f35 submarines but no match for russian air defense or 4.5,5+6 gen russian fighters at that (period) usa is toast!
Oh boy, russian copium at its best. Say hello to ,,superior” moscva warship hahahahahahahahaha
the moscwa was a 40 year old ship you idiot. it was a outdated cold war monster. no big loss, because only two modern frigates are more effective and many are just on production in russian ports.
hans, halt die fresse.
Hey, Ukrainian here. I just wanted to give America a big thanks for giving us the opportunity to fight to the last Ukrainian, on behalf of America. Dying for Joe Biden and his handlers has always been a dream of mine. Keep escalating the war please to ensure my destruction. Thanks!
rear guard equipment to intimidate the civilian population
Ukraine should use these tanks on the polish porder to repell invading landgrabbing poles.
What a brilliant idea by Poland. When they occupy Western Ukraine they will already have mbt’s there.
That’s interesting. Russia also dumped hundreds of Soviet-era tanks in Ukraine. They’re at the tank graveyard.
Your family is in animal graveyard in some ZOO. Go join them.
Well consider this, all the tanks used everywhere in the world are from Soviet times. Other than a few new tanks that do not see production. North Korea and Turkey made a few off cold war era designs. Not a new design deployed since the Soviets days……….. All tanks in use are from that time or built off the same platforms.
esel und kamelficker, halt die fresse.
Are they even in working condition? No upgrades, no maintenance for 30-40 years?
IF ANY POLISH TROOPS ENTER UKRAINE THEY WILL BE KILLED ON SIGHT. – Z-
There is a good chance that Russia would not strike Polish troops in Ukraine as long as they don’t participate in the conflict. Most likely, they could be hit mistakenly when targeting Ukrainian targets, or they would be targeted themselves if they did start their own attacks in the conflict.
I am interested in the 9 May Victory Day in Moscow. I am especially going to see which international world leaders are going to embarrass themselves by standing next to “der Fuhrer” Putin. And even more so who does not, is going to be telling about Putin international recognition or disapproval
johan, halt die fresse
pickle powered or the coal version?
I bet traitor Poland expects that they’ll be their own tanks again (pre-positioned) once Ukraine gets split up and Poland grabs their piece of western Ukraine.
Poland seems interested to repeat what terrorist Erdogan did in Idlib. Hopefully both Polish and Turkish invaders are throw out head first back into their own shitty countries.
Noice. Target practice for the RuAF just like the multi-kilometre long tankers with stolen Syrian oil that the US pilots couldn’t see but Russian AF found easily.
I am quite curious as to how these T-72’s will be transported to the Donbass front. If Russia supposedly has been taking out the railway infrastructure, how are they going to move these things? It is 800 miles from the Polish border to the Donbass front. There is no way Ukraine can drive these things all the way there.
These are stored old Soviet relics, do they even run? Where will they be repaired to get them running? If they do run they are 90’s version of T-72’s which means they will be slaughters d in a head on fight against Russian T-72’s which have been modernized. Even the US, Germany and UK’s main battle tanks are not like the ones they used in the 90’s except in name only!
How does a person who is a convicted criminal get allowed special permission to overturn every countries fundamental rules of polical party qualifications and eligibilities to be made president of Poland? Who fixed that up?
Poland hopes to recapture part of its empire in Galicia. The White West wants some place to put all the goose stepping morons now infesting Europe (let’s see Johnson attempt sending these creeps to Rwanda). NAYOYO are terrified as they now realize Ukraine is a strategic keystone whose western provinces threaten almost every eastern NAYOYO state.
Why doesn’t Russia use tactical nukes to deter Poland?
Because they do not have to.
Are you for real? War with NATO, a nuclear one too…
If Polish forces move into Ukranian territory during their war, Russia will need to defend against them as if it’s an invasion of Russia.
That would be invasion to Ukraine, as long as they don’t shoot Russian forces, you can’t do shit. Personally, i doubt they will enter Ukraine this season, maybe Moldova, but more likely it would be just Romania invited by Moldova’s figurehead.
They don’t have enough actual Ukrainans left who want to pilot those tin cans to their death.
Pass me my compendium of world flags shit paper roll, I need to take a dump.
so around 250 tanks and ifvs can only be transported mainly by train or some with heawy trucks. after 2 months of war still main railways, highways, bridges and airports still not destroyed in western ukraine and the western borders??? wtf is russia still waitnig for? and such huge transports not spotted and destroyed after they reach the first meter of ukraine? ignorance, stupidity, incompetence or both? all this trash will be destroyed by russia anyway. but it will prolong the war and rise the costs for russia in soldiers and material, unnecessary and negligent
This is only the beginning. The Poles are so stupid so they will sacrifice themselves as the next cannon fodder eager to please US.
Doubt it, no chance to enter conflict on our own. As NATO, sure, but you’ll have USA to deal with then.
