Reports: Germany supplies Leopard tanks

-

Chancellor Scholz has come under increasing pressure and now many media outlets are reporting that Germany will apparently also supply Leopard tanks to Ukraine.

Germany will now apparently deliver Leopard tanks to Ukraine. This was reported by various media with reference to government circles, including the German Press Agency. “Spiegel” is now planned to be equipped with the Leopard 2A6 version from at least one company’s Bundeswehr stocks. At ZDF’s request, there was no comment from the Prime Ministry. Equipping a company means delivering 14 weapon systems.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) has been criticized for weeks for his reluctance to deliver main battle tanks to Ukraine. Dissatisfaction was also expressed in their own coalitions. The government justifies its action by, among other things, the weight of escalation risks and the necessary international coordination.

Ukraine has been seeking a supply of main battle tanks to fight against Russian aggressors for months. The front line in eastern Ukraine is hardly moving at the moment. Ukraine hopes to return to the offensive with battle tanks and recapture more territory. At the same time, an attack by Russia for the spring is feared.

Germany came under more and more pressure when it came to supplying Leopards.

Scholz has been under pressure since Tuesday due to the Polish government’s official export application. Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak wrote on Twitter: “I also invite the German side to join the coalition of countries that support Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks.”

Poland has long put pressure on Germany in the debate over the supply of main battle tanks. Last week, President Andrzej Duda announced that Ukraine will receive 14 Leopard main battle tanks.

The Wall Street Journal also reported on Tuesday that the United States could promise “more” M1 Abrams this week to fend off Russia’s offensive war. The United States has previously emphasized that providing Abrams tanks is impractical for practical reasons.
