"Ukraine's conflict zone has been labeled a "graveyard of tanks" ", says the article published by The National Interest, APA reports.

According to the publication, in less than a week, Ukraine has reportedly seen three of its U.S.-made M1 Abrams main battle tanks (MBTs) destroyed in the ongoing fighting.

"These losses, particularly highlighted on social media, have served as a propaganda boost for Russia. The U.S. initially supplied thirty-one M1 Abrams to Ukraine, a contribution that has been critiqued as insufficient to alter the battlefield dynamics significantly. The introduction of Western tanks, including the British Challenger 2s and German Leopard 2s, has been challenged by the steep learning curve for Ukrainian crews accustomed to Soviet-based models. Amidst these developments, Ukraine's conflict zone has been labeled a "graveyard of tanks."

The Western-supplied tanks are vastly different, and a crash course on those platforms was never going to be enough to train the crews on how to best utilize the vehicles, the article says.
