Sweden currently does not have plans to send Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine but does not rule out sending them in the future, according to Defence Minister Pål Jonson said.

“At present, no preparations are being made for a donation of tanks from Sweden, but it is not excluded that this may happen at a later stage,” Jonson said.

Earlier on Friday the Swedish defence minister said there were generally no objections to sending tanks to Ukraine.

Germany wants to deliver Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine and also allow other countries like Poland to do so.

The Swedish military has about 120 Leopard-2 tanks, which are called Stridsvagn 122 in Sweden.

According to media reports, Norway is also thinking about sending Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

The government in Oslo is currently considering this.

 A decision has not yet been made.

Media reports says that it would be possible for Norway to provide Ukraine with up to eight of its 36 Leopard tanks.
