Germany has confirmed it will send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine after weeks of diplomatic pressure to do so.
The decision to deploy the tanks marks a watershed moment in the West’s support for KIEV, after days of intense pressure on Berlin from some of its NATO partners.
German government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said: “On Wednesday, Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced to the cabinet that Germany will further strengthen its military support for Ukraine.”
“The federal government has decided to make Leopard 2 main battle tanks available to the Ukrainian armed forces. This is the result of intensive consultations carried out with Germany’s closest European and international partners,” he added.
“This decision follows our well-known line of supporting Ukraine for Ukraine to the best of our ability,” concluded the spokesperson.
