"According to the available data, Pakistan also offered 44 units of the T-80UD tanks to Ukraine in exchange for financial support from the West," the article said. Defense Express reminds that Ukraine supplied thee tanks to Pakistan in 1997-1999 in the amount of 320 units.

Additional information about this deal is not disclosed. Ihe Indian publication is siting the Megh Updates Twitter page, so we may assume that it served as the original source for the news.

That post also claims that russia is not happy about Pakistan's help to Ukraine and is allegedly asking China to "bring the friend to his senses."

With the help of its own sources, Defense Express decided to find out more about the situation with the Pakistani tanks, and so far we can state that the information about the transfer of 44 T-80UD tanks has not been confirmed and that Pakistan does not plan to transfer tanks to Ukraine at least in the short term.

Earlier, the 122 mm ammunition could actually be seen on the battlefield in Ukraine, which was delivered by means of an "air bridge" that Great Britain had helped arrange.

Defense Express reminds that Pakistan has shipped more than 10,000 missiles to Ukraine for the BM-21 Grad MLRS, which were about to be delivered to Ukraine through the German port of Emden.
