It becomes difficult for Germany to respond to requests from third countries for the supply of weapons because of its obligations to NATO, said German Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht.
According to TASS, the minister stressed that Germany “is on the absolute border in terms of what it can give.” According to her, the German authorities want “to be able to provide for the defense of the country and NATO.”
At the same time, Lambrecht added that Berlin would continue to provide assistance to Kyiv. She recalled the already promised and implemented deliveries of weapons, the placement of Ukrainian refugees on the territory of Germany, and humanitarian and financial assistance to Ukraine.
In September, Lambrecht already stated that Germany had reached the limit of its capabilities in the supply of weapons, but stressed that the FRG would not stop supporting Ukraine, remaining a guaranteed reliable partner in NATO. In the same month, Germany sent six more Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns to Kyiv, bringing the total to 30 units.
