Co-Chairman of the Social Democratic Party Germany Lars Klingbeil said that Berlin would not unilaterally send Ukraine Leopard tanks. This is reported by RND.

“No country currently supplies [Киеву] such heavy tanks as Leopard 1 or Leopard 2. Therefore, it is right that the Americans, the French, and also we as the federal government are constantly thinking about whether we can now be involved in this war, ”said the politician.

Klingbeil stressed that providing the Kyiv regime with Marder infantry fighting vehicles is a concerted measure of support from the West.

The Russian side has repeatedly reported on the desire of Western countries to prolong the conflict in Ukraine with the help of arms supplies. The Ministry of Defense noted that military cargo entering the territory of this republic will become legitimate targets for the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Earlier, Senator Alexei Pushkov said that one decision by Germany “broke the backbone” of relations with Russia. According to him, this is a denial of gas supplies. More on the topic read in material Public news service.
