The Moroccan government has decided to send about 20 T-72B tanks to the Ukrainian army, which have undergone a complete modernization in the Czech Republic

Rabat made such a decision during the recent Ramstein meeting in Germany, where the delivery of heavy equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine was discussed.

This was reported by the publication MenaDefense . Tanks were purchased in 1999 and 2000 from the reserves of Belarus, but the Moroccan Ministry of Defense could not keep them in proper condition.
