On Wednesday, the German government announced the transfer of German Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. This was preceded by strong pressure from representatives of government parties on the cabinet of Olaf Scholz to make a positive decision on this issue as soon as possible.
Germany intends to form two tank battalions, at the first stage a company of 14 Leopard 2 type A6 will be provided from the reserves of the Bundeswehr. In addition, it is planned to organize training of the Ukrainian military in Germany. The new assistance package will also include logistics, ammunition and systems maintenance.
Russia previously sent a note to NATO countries because of the supply of weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov emphasized that any cargo containing ammunition and military equipment would become a legitimate target for the Aerospace Forces in the neighboring republic. The Foreign Ministry also stated that the states of the North Atlantic Alliance were “playing with fire” by supplying ammunition to the Kyiv regime.
