Escalation: NATO Spain Sending More Tanks, Military Vehicles to Ukraine
Minister Robles announced that the four new Leopard tanks would be sent to Ukraine following the first batch of six tanks, which are being prepared to be shipped to aid the Ukrainian war effort against Russian forces.
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez had pledged to send the additional tanks during his second visit to Ukraine.
Alongside the Leopards, Spain will be sending a new batch of TOA M-113 infantry vehicles — but so far no specific number has been released.
Spain has trained 55 Ukrainian personnel on operating the Leopard tanks already, equal to around ten crews.
"In the Holy Bible Book of the Apocalypse it is explained quite clearly that not one Spanish person or catholic will survive the Reaping (Cosecha?) of Planet Earth and that ONLY those people who recognize Christ on his return, inside his new body, reject Catholicism; man’s laws and accept Christ’s Sovereignty , Nationality and Law will survive. God has prophesied through Nostradamus that He will make a second butcher’s bench ( slaughter ) of the Spanish people who stand against Him and the setting up of Christ’s Kingdom in the Campo.
Nostradamus – Quatrain 8,54
Soubz la colleur du traicte mariage,
Fait magnamine par grand Chyren selin.
Quintin, Arras recouvres au voyage
D’espaignolz fait second banc macelin.
Under the bond of the Marriage -treaty (Apoc./Rev. 19:7),
a magnanimous act by the Christ Rock :
Quintin and Arras recovered on the journey;
Of the Spanish a second butcher’s bench is made."
Dozens of Ukrainian soldiers trained in Castrillo del Val, Spain, as part of the four-week training provided by Spain’s Armed Forces on how to build trenches and bridges before heading back to the war in their country.
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the government of Spain are cooperating to shore up Ukraine’s food security and its municipal sector.
Spain, a founding member of the EBRD and a strategic partner, signed an agreement to provide guarantees worth up to €100 million to support the Bank’s operations in Ukraine’s municipal sector, as well as for food security in Ukraine and other EBRD investee economies affected by the war on Ukraine.
Boosting agricultural production and securing the agricultural value chain in Ukraine are critical to ensuring food security. The EBRD’s investments are also helping to avert a global food crisis by addressing risks to the supply of vital foods, particularly to economies that are highly dependent on food imports (such as those in the Bank’s southern and eastern Mediterranean region).
EBRD President Odile Renaud-Basso said: “We are truly delighted and thankful for this very important contribution from Spain, one of our strongest partners over the years. These guarantees will allow the Bank to tackle the crucial issue of food security in Ukraine and beyond and continue its support for Ukrainian municipalities, now and when the reconstruction of the country starts.”
A day after pledging Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky its unwavering support, the European Union yesterday came face to face with one of its worst political headaches on a key commitment – how and when to welcome destitute and battered Ukraine into the bloc.
Immediately, a rift became evident: between those who want to draw in Kyiv and other aspiring nations as quickly as possible, and others that want the bloc to bide its time, setting up difficult talks on an issue that requires unanimity among the 27 member states.
Leaders will have to decide whether to officially open talks with Ukraine in December but Mr Orban said the bloc was still unprepared to take such momentous decisions.
