Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been asking for more tanks and weapons for a few weeks, and now a NATO country has answered his call and has sent tanks rolling across the border.

Ukrainian forces are to receive more than two dozen BYP-1 infantry fighting vehicles and T-72 tanks on Wednesday, which will infuriate Vladimir Putin.

UK warned sending any weapons to Ukraine ‘will make it even more bloody’ as they will become ‘legitimate targets’

NATO warns this ‘is dangerous for all of us’ as we are seeing a ‘scope of war’ not ‘seen in Europe since WWII’

Moscow threatens NATO they ‘will adequately react’ if they ‘supply aircraft and air defense systems to Ukraine’

The world is warned ‘if Russia is provoked by NATO, if Russia is attacked by NATO, why not, we are a nuclear power’

President Zelensky said the tanks are desperately needed to help in the besieged cities “that are now dying.”

Jana Cernochova, the Czech Defence Minister, told parliament, “I will only assure you that the Czech Republic is helping Ukraine as much as it can and will continue to help by (supplying) military equipment, both light and heavy.”

On Saturday the Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has said the UK will send state of the art anti-ship missile systems to Ukraine, which will make them “legitimate targets” and “will make it even more bloody,” a Russian official warned.

The Russian ambassador to the UK Andrey Kelin told the Russian TASS news agency that these “high-precision weapons” will be “destabilising.”

Kelin warned, “Any supply of weapons is destabilising, especially those that Wallace spoke about.

“They aggravate the situation, make it even more bloody. These, apparently, are new, fairly high-precision weapons.

“Of course, they will be legitimate targets for our Armed Forces if they cross the Ukrainian border.”

Last Tuesday Moscow reacted with fury against the West and threatened they “will adequately react” if NATO supplies Ukraine with any “aircraft and air defense systems.”

Vladimir Putin’s loyal Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu warned that Moscow will react “adequately” if NATO countries to supply combat aircraft and air defense systems to Ukraine’

The decision by Prague to send in tanks will place more pressure on NATO to deliver more weapons to Ukraine.
