Germany WILL send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine – reports

International Editor

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has decided to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. This comes after weeks of intense pressure and this morning a formal request or was it an ultimatum from Poland: allow the US to send our Leopards to Ukraine or we’ll do it anyway.

Shortly before we came on air, it was reported by Der Spiegl that the Germans have relented and Russia has warned Berlin there’ll be a price to pay. So the day has ended for Ukrainian President Zelenskyy a lot better than it began, with a string of sackings and resignations among senior government officials following corruption accusations.
