After a series of negotiations carried out by the USA and France with Morocco, the latter agreed to provide Ukraine with spare parts for T-72 tanks,24tv reported.
This is not the first case of cooperation between Rabat and Kyiv, because Morocco gave parts of tanks back in 2015.
It is worth noting that Morocco has several dozen T-72B tanks in service.
Morocco has taken a neutral position in Russia’s war against Ukraine and frequently abstained from voting on resolutions related to the war. Although Morocco has repeatedly stressed respect for the sovereignty of all UN members, including Ukraine. But now the situation changed with Rabat no longer neutral in this matter, and Ukraine has one more ally.
After the full-scale invasion of Russia, Ukraine started to work at the diplomatic level with African countries. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held telephone conversations with the heads of Botswana, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Guinea-Bissau, etc.
In October, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, made a tour of African countries, which started with a visit to Senegal. The diplomatic mission was assumed to last until October 12, but due to the massive missile attack on Ukraine on October 10, Dmytro Kuleba urgently returned to Ukraine.
