The North Korean leader’s influential sister, Kim Yo Jong, has condemned the decision made by Washington to arm Ukraine with more powerful M1 Abram tanks to fight off Russian brutality, blaming the U.S. for crossing a red line and intensifying a sinister proxy conflict designed to destroy Moscow. Kim Yo Jong said she expressed grave concerns over America intensifying the barbarity by approving third-generation MBTs for the ground offensive.
Recently on Jan. 25, Biden’s White House announced that it would weaponize the Zelenskyy military with heavy M1A1 Abram Main Battle Tanks (MBTs), a major reversal in Europe’s effort to equip Ukrainian Armed Forces as it readies for a second Moscow offensive. The thirty-one Abrams will expand on over twenty-seven billion dollars America pledged to Ukraine’s vigorous battle since the Kremlin invaded about eleven months ago.
It’s official: The U.S. is sending 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, Biden announced today.

While speaking from the White House, the American President said that delivering the Chrysler Defense-designed Abram MBTs will boost Kyiv’s defense capability to defend its land and attain its strategic aims. However, he added that the delivery of these battle tanks to the combat zone would take time.
The Kremlin said that the delivery of main battle tanks from the U.S. and European countries is evidence of the direct and increasing involvement of NATO in the Moscow-Kyiv war. Moscow’s statement comes after Washington and Berlin announced they’d send third-generation MBTs in its fight against Putin-led forces.
In recent developments, the Ukrainian military personnel were locked in an intense fight with Moscow troops to take the authority of Vuhledar city in the Donetsk region, with a population of around 14,144. Denis Pushilin, the Russian-installed Donetsk leader, said that the encirclement and subsequent freeing of the town of Vuhledar solves several issues.
