Von der Leyen: “Give the tanks to Ukraine”

“If they say they need combat tanks, then we should take them seriously and supply them.” The president of the EU Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said this in an interview with Bild. “I am in favor of European states providing what Ukraine actually needs. Ukrainians are showing that they can defend themselves if they have the right military means,” said von der Leyen on a visit to Kyiv. Berlin said it was against supplying German tanks to Kyiv, for example the Leopard 2.
