The Government of Germany has confirmed that it will send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine to strengthen the capacity of the Ukrainian Armed Forces against the Russians, after days of speculation about the position that Berlin would finally adopt.

Olaf Scholz’s executive spokesman, Steffen Hebestreit, explained that Germany will deliver 14 Leopard 2A6s that are in the arsenal of the German Armed Forces.

The Ukrainian ambassador to Germany, Oleksiy Makeiev, applauded this Wednesday the formation of a “great coalition of tanks” with a view to the possible delivery of this type of weapon to kyiv.

“These tanks will help us repel the Russian offensive and liberate our Russian-occupied territories and the population,” he said during a visit to the German city of Hamburg. “I hope that our boys will receive these cats in Ukraine soon,” she said, ironically about the Leopards.

In this sense, he stressed that the tanks would help “save lives.” “We need everything and we are grateful for all kinds of help,” Makeiev said, emphasizing that the Ukrainian Army and military “have shown that they can handle different equipment.” “I assume we will talk about more weapons systems,” he said, without ruling out new demands from Ukraine.
