Russian special operation in Ukraine

The new Minister of Defense of Germany, Boris Pistorius, did not see the proper return from the Western countries, which collected only half of the promised tanks for Ukraine. He told the journalist that he expected more, but was upset after he found out the real number of Leopard 2s ready for transfer.

“I would say I was a little disappointed, because the voices that we heard before (a meeting of the contact group on Ukraine on January 20 at the American Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany – approx. URA.RU) were louder. And so I expected more tanks from the Allies after the German decision on the Leopards, Pistorius told a correspondent. CNN.

Western countries agreed on the supply of heavy military equipment to Ukraine after a meeting of representatives of NATO defense ministries at the German military base Ramstein. However, later it became known that Ukraine would receive only half of the promised Leopard 2A6 tanks. This was told by Pistorius, who thus summed up the agreement between Western countries on the supply of heavy military equipment to Kyiv. British Defense Minister Ben Wallace, in turn, explained that European countries discovered the absence of serviceable tanks after the decision was made to transfer them. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also reacted to these events, who was disappointed with his partners.
