Member of the German Bundestag warned against the supply of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine

Germany should not supply Ukraine with new Tanks Leopard 2, since this will only aggravate the conflict, and it is in the interests of all parties, including European countries, to stop hostilities. This was stated by the deputy of the Bundestag from the Social Democratic Party of Germany, member of the Foreign Policy Committee Michael Müller on the air of the ARD TV channel.


As the politician noted, Kyiv needs help. But Germany should do this, refraining from unilateral decisions, including the idea of ​​supplying Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

According to Muller, tanks can be transferred to Ukraine only in coordination with other NATO countries. Now all countries are interested in the fact that the North Atlantic Alliance does not turn into one of the parties to the conflict, the Bundestag deputy stressed. Therefore, Germany should avoid any rash actions.

Mueller believes that the supply of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine would contribute to further escalation. Therefore, many Western countries with comparable tanks are in no hurry to transfer them to Ukraine. We are talking, in particular, about the same United States, which has so far refrained from transferring Abrams tanks. Do not transfer their tanks and the French.

Meanwhile, Russia has repeatedly warned Western countries that the supply of weapons and military equipment to the Kyiv regime would only further prolong the conflict. In addition, all Western military equipment, ending up on the territory of Ukraine, becomes a legitimate target for strikes by the Russian armed forces.

    On the other hand, if this is a stuffing for probing public opinion and the reaction of the Russian Federation, then it means that Little Russia has already been mentally merged ...

    The Finns, not yet members of NATO, but have a fairly large fleet of "Leo-2" and have expressed their readiness to consider the supply of "Leo-2A4" to Ukraine.
    At the same time, they are probing in the United States the possibility of supplying a batch of M1 Abrams tanks to their arsenal.

      Have you ever been told about bridges? This I mean that many bridges on the territory of Ukraine will not withstand the weight of the Leopard.

        Have you ever been told about bridges?

        Yes, they said that any operation should be well supported in engineering terms, and it’s not for nothing that the Germans have already delivered caterpillar bridge layers to Ukraine

    The decision is still not made by the Germans. If they say "Give!" from across the ocean, they will take it under the visor and send hi

    It is necessary to apply a wide range in the lexicon. They use stupid translation and there is no fear of war, they consider it toys.

    What a hypocritical cover for greed and anti-advertising of burning German tanks. As much as possible the same thing, there will be no tanks, too television picture, Petriot is one thing, or even a plane, whoever sees it, you can always shrug off that we didn’t hit them.

    in the interests of all parties, including European countries, to cease hostilities.

    Perhaps, yes. However, the devil is in the details - to stop hostilities in whose favor? On whose terms?
    Mueller believes that the supply of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine would contribute to further escalation.

    Isn't further escalation the goal of the collective West?

    Neither the United States nor Germany is profitable and does not really need the victory of Ukraine over the Russian Federation. This is not in their interests, and the supply of the required quantity and especially high-quality equipment, such as the Leopard2 obt, will be able to radically change the situation on the battlefield and really force the Russian Federation to use poison weapons , which they don’t want at all. In addition, capturing a really very high-quality type of tank will give a strong technological backlog for the Russian Federation. It’s no secret to anyone that the technical lag, especially in communications, detection and destruction of Russian (Soviet) tanks, is large in comparison with Western ones. And in the West they are very wary of complex technologies falling into the hands of the enemy. This is not for you to supply Polish slag in the form of T72 from the master's shoulder.
