The event, which kicked off on May 7 and will be running until May 12, involves battle tanks and crews from Ukraine, five NATO member countries (USA, Austria, Germany, France and Poland) and NATO partner countries.

On the occasion, Ukraine’s largest state-run defence enterprise Ukroboronprom modernized several T-64s, the Ukrainian army’s main battle tanks.
