The German parliament says “no” to sending tanks to Ukraine

The opposition CDU and CSU persuaded the coalition of the SPD, the Greens and the FDP in the Bundestag to provide Ukraine with tanks. After nearly an hour of debate, the coalition MPs and the Left wing rejected the motion.

As Johann Wadephul of the CDU argued during the debate, Russia’s war with Ukraine entered a new phase after Vladimir Putin partially mobilized Russian reservists. “This is Russian imperialism that cannot win,” argued Wadephul. He also referred to the Bundestag resolution of April 28, which allowed the delivery of heavy weapons but, according to the opposition, “is not being properly implemented”.
