Ukraine’s western allies would need to supply “several hundred” tanks in order for Kyiv to conduct a counteroffensive against Russian forces to retake occupied territory, according to Andriy Yermak, chief of staff to Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

Yermak posted to Telegram:

We need tanks – not 10-20, but several hundred. Our goal is [restoring] the borders of 1991 and punishing the enemy, who will pay for their crimes.
