The government of Germany has confirmed that it will send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine to bolster the capability of Ukrainian forces against the Russians, after days of speculation over the position Berlin would eventually take.

Olaf Scholz’s executive spokesman, Steffen Hebestreit, explained that Germany will provide 14 Leopard 2A6s that are in the arsenal of the German Armed Forces.

Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Oleksiy Makeiev on Wednesday welcomed the formation of a “grand coalition of tanks” for the possible delivery of this type of weapon to Kiev.

“These tanks will help us repel the Russian offensive and liberate our Russian-occupied territories and population,” he said during a visit to the German city of Hamburg. “I hope our boys will soon receive these cats in Ukraine,” he said ironically about the leopards.

In this sense, he stressed that the tanks would help “save lives”. “We need everything and we are grateful for all kinds of help,” said Makeiev, emphasizing that the Ukrainian army and military have “shown that they can handle different equipment.” “I assume we will talk about more weapons systems,” he said, without ruling out new demands from Ukraine.
