Germany has announced its first delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine to help it fend off Russian attacks after weeks of pressure from home and abroad.
Berlin green-lighted the delivery of tanks with anti-aircraft guns in a move welcomed by the United States.
On Tuesday, German Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht stated that the government had approved the delivery of Gepard tanks equipped with anti-aircraft guns. Germany is also moving toward reducing its reliance on energy imports from Russia.
US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, stated, “Those systems will provide real capability for Ukraine,” after talks at the US Ramstein Air Base in western Germany.
