In Athens, they cited tensions with Turkey and said the tanks were absolutely necessary for their own defense.

Greek authorities have refused to supply Ukraine with Leopard tanks, explaining that the country needs them because of growing tensions with Turkey. This is what Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in an interview with Nikkei Asia.

Mitsotakis recalled that Greece has already given a lot of help to Ukraine.

“We have provided significant military support to Ukraine, for example with armored personnel carriers, but we will not provide Leopard 2 tanks for the simple reason that they are absolutely essential to our defensive position,” Mitsotakis said.

He added that Greece is ready to support Ukraine, but not at the expense of its own defense capabilities.

Remember that in December, Turkish President Erdogan threatened Greece with Turkish missiles.
