They also explained why the head of the Kremlin will not dare to renew nuclear threats.
The leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, Lars Klingbeil, does not predict a revival of nuclear threats from Russia due to the decision to transfer the armed forces Leopard tanks.
He said this in an interview Tageszeitung. “It is unlikely. But it is right that the Federal Chancellery is thinking about this issue,” Klingbeil said, adding that “Putin will not intimidate us.”
“Putin understands that if he crosses this line, he will lose such key allies as the Chinese,” Klingbeil said.
He also stated that there are no red lines when it comes to the supply of weapons to Ukraine.
“It’s about weighing. It annoys me when a thorough review is presented as a departure from Ukraine. This is not the case. The chancellor should ask himself what consequences the supply of battle tanks can have,” the politician explained the situation.
Transfer of Leopard tanks
On January 24, the media published data that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz agreed to the transfer of battle tanks to Ukraine Leopard after many months of discussions with the Allies.
