The Pentagon has not yet commented on this information.

In a U-turn, the US looks set to lift its objections to sending US M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, and an announcement on the matter may even be made within the week, the Wall Street Journal writes.

According to this source, the announcement will be part of a wider diplomatic deal with Germany under which Berlin will agree to send a smaller number of its own Leopard 2 tanks but also approve their re-export from Poland and other countries to Ukraine. In this way, the dispute that threatened to break the Western alliance, eleven months after the start of the war, will be settled.

Two US officials who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity said they did not know whether a final decision had been made to send the Abrams to Ukraine, a move that would encourage Germany to do the same.
