In an interview with the news service Interfax-Ukraine Reichel at the same time said that the FRG are categorically opposed to the Javelin anti-tank systems in the zone of armed conflict.
According to the ambassador, it makes no sense at all to supply Javelin to Donbass for the simple reason that there is no tank battles.
From the statement of the German diplomatic representative in Ukraine:
It is necessary to take into account that the weapon from the United States-it is weaponry that has no direct relation to the fighting in the Donbas. The most frequently mentioned are Javelin anti-tank missile systems, but there are no tank battles in the Donbas. Accordingly, the supply of this weapon is symbolic and a precautionary measure in the event of a possible more massive attack. This is not a contribution to the direct resolution of the conflict in the Donbas.
Ukraine, on the contrary, demonstrates with all its might that Javelin is transferred by Washington as a weapon that “can and should be” used in the Donbas. But just for what or for whom are they going to shoot the APU in this case?
