+++ Breaktrough: German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will announces the delivery of German Leopard tanks to Ukraine. More soon on POLITICO

How did Poland manage to convince Germany not only to allow them to send Leopards but then to send Leopards too? Usually Germany has more political influence over Poland, not the other way around.

The Biden administration is leaning toward sending "a significant number" of M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, two U.S. officials told @laraseligman and @alexbward. An announcement could come as early as this week. The U.S. is considering sending 30-50 Abrams tanks, one person said.

Biden administration plans to send Ukraine battle tanks to help in its war with Russia:

WASHINGTON – The Biden administration plans to send more than 30 of its frontline battle tanks to Ukraine, a move intended to unlock Germany’s reluctance to supply its own main battle tank to bolster Ukrainian forces battling Russia, according to a U.S. official.

Modern, capable tanks are seen as critical to Ukraine’s ability to resist an expected springtime offensive by Russian forces and to help the Ukrainians claw back parts of their country seized during the invasion ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Ukrainians operate Russian and Soviet-era tanks. Western tanks would provide them with vehicles that have more firepower, mobility and armor.

Gavrilov made some interesting comments at the OSCE forum. On the surface this reads like a warning against sending long-range artillery, but you can also validly interpret it as a threat of retaliation agains the West should UA be able to launch another successful offensive in the southeast.

Note that while he doesn't immediately mention tanks, he does go on to say that "Kyiv's use of uranium-tipped projectiles to fire from Leopard 2 tanks will be regarded by Moscow as the use of dirty nuclear bombs." 🤔

Oh, btw., Putin spoke again today, but as is tradition he didn't say anything interesting. These days he almost sounds like a sane man - if you forget about everything that's going on.
