Defense Ministry: Germany will not take individual steps to send tanks to Ukraine
Germany refuses to take personal steps to send tanks to Ukraine. Furthermore, none of the FRG partners have yet sent Western-style main battle tanks to Ukraine. This was stated by the head of the country’s Ministry of Defense Christina Lambrecht, TASS reports.
Earlier it became known that Germany will transfer heavy armored vehicles as support to Ukraine: Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 tanks, Marder infantry fighting vehicles and Fuchs armored personnel carriers. Leopard 2 is also called “Tank Storm”.
On September 16, the head of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leynen, called for the start of the delivery of Western tanks to Ukraine’s armed forces. According to her, for the victory of democracy in Ukraine in the conflict with Russia, it is necessary to put tanks in the republic, and the allies should do it immediately.
At the same time, Lars Klingbiel, co-chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), said Germany was not supplying Western-made tanks as part of deals with allies, fearing such a move would bring the EU closer to war with Russia. Moreover, the Bloomberg Observer reported that Germany has the number of tanks needed to supply Ukraine, but will not share them yet due to a silent agreement between Western countries.
