Morocco to Provide Military Aid to Ukraine –


Addis Ababa, December 23, 2020 (Walta) – Morocco is set break its perceived neutrality over the conflict in Ukraine, becoming the first African country to provide military support to Kyiv.

According to a report by Le Journal de l’Afrique, at the request of the US, the Moroccan government has agreed to transfer spare parts for T-72 tanks to the Ukrainian military.

The Royal Moroccan Armed Forces have several dozen T-72B/BK-type tanks purchased from Belarus between 1999 and 2001.

It wouldn’t be the first time that the kingdom has cooperated militarily with Ukraine.

In July 2015, the Ukrainian state-owned arms supplier Ukroboronservice asked Morocco for spare parts for its T-72 tanks.
