Under pressure for days, Germany opened the way on Tuesday for an authorization for the allied countries to deliver heavy tanks.

The essential

  • Under pressure for days, Germany should finally deliver Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, claimed by kyiv, two German media reported on Tuesday evening.

    Chancellor Olaf Scholz could give the green light this Wednesday, according to Spiegel.

  • The United States could, for their part, agree to deliver Abrams tanks, says the Wall Street Journal.

  • Several senior Ukrainian officials have announced their resignation, after the revelation by the media of alleged corruption cases.

  • The European Union announced on Monday that it was granting an additional 500 million euros to supply armaments to kyiv and allocating 45 million euros for the training of Ukrainian soldiers on EU territory.


US tanks would be a new “flagrant provocation”

"If American tanks are sent to Ukraine, they will be destroyed, like all other NATO equipment," said Anatoly Antonov, Russian Ambassador to the United States.

For him, if Washington decides to send tanks to Ukraine, “it will be impossible to justify using the argument of defensive weapons”.

It would rather be, in his eyes, another blatant provocation against Russia”, he judges in an interview transcribed on the Facebook page of the embassy. 


Germany will deliver Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, according to two media

Chancellor Olaf Scholz should give the green light on Wednesday to send German Leopard 2 type 2A6 tanks, Spiegel says on its website, without citing a source.

It is "at least one company", or at least ten heavy tanks, adds this media.

The NTV news channel, which quotes sources close to the government, also indicates that the German chancellor, under pressure for several weeks to give his agreement, is preparing to announce it.

The German leader, who must speak at 1 p.m. in front of the lower house of the German Parliament, would also give his agreement to countries, including Poland, which wish to deliver Leopard 2 tanks to kyiv, according to these media.
