Ukraine war: First German Leopard tanks to be delivered ‘very soon’

World leaders, officials and diplomats gathered in Bavaria today to talk tanks and tough on Russia.

The annual Munich Security Conference is normally a forum for debating a range of international security issues, but this year the war in Ukraine dominates all else.

The German Chancellor Olaf Scholz promised his Leopard tanks were on the way ‘very soon’, while Emmanuel Macron said now’s not the time for dialogue with the Kremlin.

The Russians were not invited.
