The United States, in a reversal, is poised to start a process that would eventually send dozens of M1 Abrams battle tanks to Ukraine, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday (January 24). Such a decision by the United States would come just days after Washington argued against sending the Abrams, despite demands from Kyiv and public pressure from Berlin as it faced calls to send German-made Leopard battle tanks. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said an announcement could come as early as Wednesday (January 25). A third source familiar with the matter said the U.S. commitment could total about 30 Abrams tanks to be delivered over the coming months.
