* Ukraine air defences shot down 24 drones including 15 around Kyiv
* Zelensky hopes tank deal will lead to deliveries of long-range missiles
The Kremlin claims the West is now ‘directly involved’ in the Ukraine war after agreeing to send state-of-the-art tanks to the front lines in the fight against Russia’s invading forces. Yesterday, after weeks of bitter infighting, the US and Germany finally agreed to give in to Volodymyr Zelensky’s demands and send 31 M1 Abrams tanks, 14 Leopard 2 tanks, and give allies permission to send their own supply. The deal has been hailed as a potential game-changer in the conflict. A furious Russia has lashed out at the deal and threatened escalating the war beyond the borders of Ukraine, while slamming a barrage of missiles into Kyiv overnight.
