Background:

In late January, Ukrainian tank crews arrived in the UK to train on Challenger 2 tanks.

On 15 January, the UK confirmed its plans to provide Ukraine with a company of 14 Challenger 2 tanks and about 30 AS90 155mm SPHs.

Alex Chalk, British Deputy Secretary of Defence, hopes that Challenger 2 tanks would arrive in Ukraine at the end of March.
