Germany is ready to send German tanks to Ukraine, but only on the condition that the US does the same.
A German government source confirmed to the press agency Reuters Germany to send German-made Panther tanks to Ukraine That decision was up in the air for days. As NATO partners disagree on how best to arm Ukraine in a war against Russia, Germany has stipulated that the United States also send tanks.
Biden is expected to approve the supply of Canadian Stryker armored cars to Ukraine. US tanks will not be sent into the war zone for now. Kiev had previously urged the US to send the so-called M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. But after returning from a visit to the war zone, US Deputy Secretary of Defense Colin Gall confirmed Reuters Those bins will not be provided. The United States has already announced $125 million to rebuild Ukraine’s power grid, which was severely damaged by Russian attacks.
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video message that Western tanks and anti-aircraft guns are urgently needed. The president said they need to be there before the Russians launch attacks with new missile strikes and armored vehicles.
