During the talks at the Ramstein airbase, the NATO countries supporting Ukraine could not agree on the supply of German Leopard 2 tanks to Kiev. This was stated by German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius.
Pistorius explained that the countries simply did not agree on the supply, and this is not due to the fact that Germany is allegedly blocking the decision. “There are good reasons for the delivery, there are good reasons against it,” he said.
At the same time, the head of the German Ministry of Defense promised that a decision on the supply would be "made as soon as possible."
Earlier, the Netherlands said it was ready to help pay for the Leopard 2 tanks that other countries would send to Ukraine: “This is certainly what we are ready to do,” Dutch Defense Minister Kaisa Ollongren assured.
Ukraine has been asking for modern battle tanks for a long time. Poland and Finland are ready to send her German Leopard 2 tanks, but this requires German permission, and Berlin hesitates.
