Ukrainian Ambassador: We have not received a single piece of heavy equipment from Berlin

 Ukraine's ambassador to Germany, Andrij Melnyk, once again called for the swift delivery of the weapons promised by Germany. He was pleased with the announcement that weapons would be sent to Ukraine. "But to be honest, (...) not a single piece of heavy equipment has been delivered to Ukraine from Germany so far," he told German TV.

The first weapons will not arrive until the end of June. Andrij Melnyk emphasized that Ukraine's main goal is to restore territorial sovereignty - at least to the state before the war began on February 24. He also added that "we will never give up Crimea, that's clear."

The ambassador welcomed the recent announcement by Chancellor Olaf Scholz to send weapons to Ukraine, such as the Iris-T air defense system.

We will see if that happens. Germany is clearly "running down the clock". - PN
