Germans received Polish application for permission to send Leopards to Ukraine, soldiers are already training

Polish media report that Poland has applied to the German government for permission to transfer Leopard tanks to Ukraine. 

Niezalezna_pl: "I hope for a quick response from the Germans; they are currently delaying and avoiding," said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during a press briefing.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius encouraged the partner countries to start training military personnel from Ukraine on Leopard tanks. "We're not standing in the way of that," Pistorius said at a press conference in Berlin on Tuesday with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Pistorius also said he expected a decision on the supply of Leopard tanks to Ukraine "soon."

According to Defense Minister Pistorius, Germany is not alone in the debate on tanks on the international arena. It is right to take the time to decide on the delivery of the Leopard to Ukraine, said the minister, quoted by the portal of the weekly "Spiegel."

"There is a consensus that NATO cannot become a party to the war," he stressed.

Wpolityce_pl: We can see very clearly that they do not want to help Ukraine, which is defending itself, to a greater extent. What does this mean, then? Fear? Some incomprehensible fear or faith that a return to normal relations with Russia is still possible. It is worth asking these questions, because - in fact - the coalition of states that want to help Ukraine to repel the barbaric Russian aggression must expand, - stressed the head of the Polish government.

Germany is the largest country and should contribute as much as possible to this coalition of countries that help Ukraine. We have sent a request; we are waiting for a quick response. We are already training Ukrainian soldiers in Poland, as well as other countries on their territory. This is nothing new, and we will continue to do so - Prime Minister Morawiecki assured.
