German authorities remain undecided on the supply of Leopard 2 tanks to kyiv.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is confident that the Alliance will soon find a solution for the supply of combat vehicles to Ukraine, declared after meeting on Tuesday with German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius.

“At this crucial moment in the war, we must provide heavier and more advanced systems to Ukraine, and we must do it faster,” Stoltenberg told reporters. “Therefore, I welcome our discussions today. We have discussed the issue of combat vehicles. Consultations among the Allies will continue and I am confident that we will have a solution soon,” he added.

Pistorius stated that Germany does not prevent other countries from training Ukrainian troops to use Leopard combat vehicles. Without mentioning Poland, he criticized some stakeholders for giving the impression that “there is disunity or that Germany is isolated.”

After several rounds of talks with NATO partners on the possible supply of Leopard 2 tanks to kyiv, the German authorities, and in particular Foreign Minister Olaf Scholz, remain undecided on the delivery of these heavy main battle tanks. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, considers the German position “unacceptable” and has proposed creating a coalition of countries willing to send them without the approval of Berlin.
