Polónia assdinala intenção de enviar tanques Leopard para a Ucrânia
January 24, 2023 - A Alemanha está sob pressão da Ucrânia e de alguns aliados na NATO para permitir o fornecimento a Kiev dos tanques Leopard 2 para a sua defesa contra a invasão russa.
Pressure has been building on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government to send its Leopard tanks to Ukraine and also let other countries send the ones they own – under military procurement rules, Germany must authorise any re-exports.
But Scholz’s Social Democrat party has been holding back, wary of sudden moves that could cause Moscow to escalate further.
A German defence source told Reuters that Poland had submitted a request to the German government to let it supply up to 14 Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine, upping the pressure on Berlin still further, Reuters said.
