However, this requires the permission of the Swiss government.
The government of the Netherlands is going to buy dozens of Leopard 1 tanks for Ukraine. A Swiss company may become the supplier.
About this informs broadcaster NOS, citing sources in The Hague.
However, in order to transfer tanks for the Armed Forces, permission is needed from the Swiss government, with which an agreement has not yet been concluded. Official Bern is committed to maintaining neutrality, and arms shipments could shake that status.
At the end of April, it became known that the Netherlands and Denmark will purchase fourteen Leopard 2-A4 main battle tanks for Ukraine. They should arrive in Ukraine next year.
As a reminder, the Netherlands plans to soon start training Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighters. This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Wopke Hoekstra.
