If Poland decides to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, Germany will not stand in their way. “At the moment, the question hasn’t been asked, but if we were asked, we wouldn’t say no,” Burbock said.

Almost at the same time, in an interview with the German ARD channel, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius noted that “the decision depends on many factors and is made by the chancellor.”

Earlier, the foreign ministers of the Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – called on Germany to supply Leopard tanks to Ukraine. “This is necessary to stop Russian aggression, help Ukraine and quickly restore peace in Europe,” said Latvian Minister Edgars Renkivics, who also said he was speaking on behalf of colleagues in Estonia and Lithuania. “Germany, as the leading European power, has a special responsibility in this regard,” he said.

On Friday, a meeting of fifty of Ukraine’s allies took place in Ramstein, southern Germany, where the delivery of heavy weapons was discussed. However, no decision was made on the delivery of German Leopard 2 tanks, which Ukraine had long requested to acquire.

“We see it has now become trench warfare. The Russians have gone deep and there is very little movement on that front. Leopard tanks can bring movement again. They are very fast and maneuverable tanks with guns at a range of up to four kilometres. It is considered one of the best tanks in the world.” “. Ukraine hopes this will mark a turning point in the war.

‘a global tragedy’

The speaker of Russia’s parliament in the State Duma earlier warned of a “global tragedy” if Ukraine’s allies deliver German Leopard 2 tanks to Kyiv. “The delivery of offensive weapons to the Kyiv regime will lead to a global catastrophe,” Vyacheslav Volodin wrote on his Telegram channel on Sunday. He said Russia would use “stronger weapons” if the United States and NATO provided Kyiv with weapons that could be used to restore territory.
