The Russian government has spoken out against foreign allies providing Ukraine with light tanks in new military aid packages, warning that they will "only prolong the suffering" of the war.The Ukrainian military is set to receive an influx of new light armored personnel vehicles from its allies. The vehicles have been likened to tanks, but, as the Associated Press explained, they are lighter and more agile than traditional tanks, and come equipped with a variety of mounted weaponry.
