Cabinet of Ministers of Germany: Germany does not intend to transfer Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine yet

The German government denied plans to supply Ukraine tanks Leopard 2. According to the representative of the German Cabinet, Steffen Hebeshtreit, official Berlin is trying to avoid a scenario in which NATO becomes a full-fledged party to the armed conflict in Ukraine. At the same time, the official did not explain why Germany does not consider itself a party to the conflict, transferring to Kyiv, for example, self-propelled guns PzH 2000 ...


The representative of the German government added that Germany intends to limit itself to providing maximum support to Kyiv, while not taking steps that can be regarded as the full participation of a NATO member country as one of the parties to the conflict. Hebeshtreit also added that he was not aware of any plans by Poland to form an international coalition dealing with the supply of heavy weapons to the Ukrainian army.

The head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki, also previously denied the intention to make large deliveries of German Leopard tanks to the Kyiv regime. The Polish authorities announced that they are discussing with the governments of other countries the formation of an international alliance that will provide Ukraine with Western-made heavy weapons. In Warsaw, they said that they could supply "only single copies of such tanks."

According to German Vice Chancellor, Minister for Economic Affairs and Environmental Protection Robert Habek, there is still a possibility of future deliveries of Leopard tanks to Ukraine. This issue is being discussed in the German government, all actions in this direction are preliminary coordinated with Germany's partners in the NATO military bloc. Berlin wants someone else to start these deliveries.

      "Ladies, no ladies", "arsenals are empty, there are not enough weapons", "the economy is stagnating, inflation is going through the roof, there is no money for Ukraine to fight against Russia", etc. etc., yes, we have been hearing and reading this for a whole year, and we have not believed in this verbal diarrhea for a long time.

      There was a similar article today.
      I already wrote that no one will ask Gerania whether she will give or not ...
      All weapons of the NATO countries are promptly disposed of by their joint headquarters, which plans when and how much weapons will be transferred to Ukraine, taking into account the formation of new corps (two corps are being formed now)

      Yes, but not before the Americans start delivering their tanks, so to speak, on parity. If the Americans start deliveries of the M60, then Leo-1 will go, if the M-1 goes, then Leo-2 will go

    Germany has Leopard-2 tanks and so few, up to 350 vehicles
    CBO showed that tanks are consumables
    completely unprotected in the upper hemisphere
    the same Lancets with 3 kg of explosives calmly destroy the self-propelled guns PzH 2000 into the roof
    + UAS 152-mm Krasnopol - 6-11 kg of explosives and 120-mm mine Edge - 5 kg of explosives

    Everyone is afraid and trying to avoid the fate of Ukrainians - NATO warriors will sit in tanks, after all, a tank is not a moped, you won’t learn how to drive, fight, repair in a week)))
    But the owner will force them, they will put them like cute ones with a set of their soldiers and repairmen ......
    In this case, let them wait for arrivals first in Poland

      There will be no arrivals within Poland. Poland is not Belgorod. Who will bomb Poland? Those who made the "Christmas truce" and other gestures?

    For the first time since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, the UK is considering the possibility of supplying Kyiv with British Challenger 2 tanks. Not alone, others will supply
