Today it became known that the Chancellor of Germany gave his official permission for the transfer of 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi had a private conversation with the head of the German government Olaf Scholz after today’s decision of Berlin to hand over 14 tanks Leopard 2 Ukraine.
According to Sky News, the conversation took place before the speech of the Chancellor of Germany in the German parliament. In his address to the Bundestag, Scholz noted that the war between Ukraine and the Russian Federation endangers many European principles.
“The cause of the challenges facing us is a terrible war of aggression against Ukraine. A terrible war where the principles we agreed on in Europe were called into question,” he said.
In this context, Scholz declared the “correctness” of international cooperation in the issue of arms supplies.
Delivery of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine
Against the background of Berlin’s permission to supply Leopard 2 combat vehicles to Ukraine, the Ministry of Defense of Poland assumed that Kyiv’s partners could “easily” supply the country a hundred Leopard 2 tanks.
Earlier, the media of Portugal wrote that Lisbon can hand over to Ukraine four working Leopard 2s of 12 capable machines that are in service.
This week, Washington may approve the delivery of its tanks to Kyiv Abrams.
