Poland has Leopard 2 tanks. The government wants to make them available to Ukraine. But since Germany is the country of manufacture, the delivery requires approval from the German Chancellor.

The pressure is growing. Germany is to deliver Leopard 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine. Not only the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (44) demands this with vehemence. Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania appeal to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz (64). Poland even wants to send its Leopard 2 to the Ukrainian eastern front, and has now officially asked the manufacturing country Germany for approval. Britain pledges 14 of its own Challenger 2 main battle tanks to Selenski and expects Germany to follow suit.

Even in the traffic light coalition there are rumblings. Politicians from the FDP and the Greens want to support Ukraine with heavy weapons. The Green Federal Foreign Minister pressed ahead. She would not stand in the way of a delivery from third countries, explained Annalena Baerbock (42) in an interview with a French TV station on Sunday evening. But the German chancellor hesitates.
