Volodymyr Klychko tries a Leopard: "Our will is as strong as this tank"

In a video posted on Twitter by Volodymyr Omelyan, former Minister of Infrastructure of Kiev between 2016 and 2019, the twin brother of Kiev Mayor Vitaly Klychko, Volodymyr, is seen driving one of the German Leopard tanks for trial.



"February 24. A year later. I would never have thought, a year ago, that I would get to drive this "cat" (in reference to the name of the crawler, Leopard, ed). A year of war in Ukraine. A year of suffering. It is a year in which our willpower has strengthened as never before. As strong as this tank. Thank you Germany, thank you free world, for everything you do for us Ukrainians. Glory to Ukraine. Glory to the heroes."

These are the words that accompany the "test" of the Leopard tank supplied by Germany to Ukraine by Volodymyr Klychko, twin brother of the mayor of Kiev Vitaly. The video, posted on the occasion of the first anniversary of the outbreak of war and the Russian invasion, appeared on the Twitter profile of Volodymyr Omelyan, former Minister of Infrastructure in Kiev between 2016 and 2019. Omelyan presents himself as a "politician" and says he "fights the Russians since childhood."
