Ukraine: how Western tanks will change the war
Play • 27 min

Nearly a year after Putin invaded Ukraine, how might Western tanks change this war and should Nato countries go a step further and also supply Kyiv with fighter jets? 

Moscow’s aggression has been roundly condemned by the West, but words have been plenty and military aid less forthcoming. 

Having successfully fought back since the summer, now Ukraine wants to go on the offensive once more, and they need tanks to do it.

In today’s Fourcast, our Europe editor Matt Frei discusses what western tanks mean for Ukraine, why countries like Germany have been so reluctant to send them and whether this is all too little too late ahead of a possible Russian offensive this spring.

Producer: Alice Wagstaffe and Freya Pickford
