President of the European Commission against the position of Germany. It’s about tanks for Ukraine

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen on Thursday in an interview with “Bild” opposed the position of native Germany, which for various reasons refused to supply combat tanks to Ukraine, and stated that if Ukraine asks for tanks, it must be given to her – informs ” European Truth “.

If Ukrainians say they need combat tanks, we must take it seriously and give it to them – said the head of the EU executive, adding that Ukraine knows exactly what it needs “to protect its people and itself”.

I support European countries in providing what Ukraine really needs. After all, the Ukrainians prove that they can defend themselvesif they have the necessary military means von der Leyen added.

I am deeply convinced that Ukraine will win and Putin will lose. Ukraine has a remarkable motivation. They know what they are fighting for. And friends all over the world are doing everything to ensure that Ukraine receives the appropriate weapons systems Ursula von der Leyen said.

Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz explained that his country was already helping Ukraine enough with the decision to hand over the tanks will only be made in consultation with the allies.

Co-chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, Lars Klingbeil recently stated that the ruling coalition had taken unanimous decision not to deliver combat tanks to Ukrainebecause it will take a long time to prepare the Ukrainian army for use.

At the same time, after Ukraine’s major successes in the Kharkiv region, writes “Bild”, German political parties, especially coalition onesdemand from the government to strengthen support for Ukraine with arms, especially handing over the Leopard 2 tanks and the Marder infantry fighting vehicles.
