Readers of the German newspaper Die Welt commented on the decision of the German authorities to provide the Kiev regime with the Leopard 1 tanks on February 3. They call it a program for the disposal of obsolete equipment.
“I’ll call Dresden, the military museum. There used to be more equipment there,” said Georg T.
“Scrap metal is a valuable raw material in a resource-poor country!” noted Fritz S.
“So, Leopard 1, or easy recycling…” reported stephan h.
“I’m curious, when will there be criticism from Ukraine that they are too old and it would be better to get submarines and Eurofigher fighters instead?” wondered Felix H.
“Super, and now all that’s left to do is approve sending the Millennium Falcon to them, and go ahead!” Samdmann added.
On January 25, the German government, after long discussions, announced the decision to transfer Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. Two tank battalions will be formed. The first company will consist of A6 tanks. They will be taken from the Bundeswehr’s warehouses.
German MP Ralf Stegner said that when supplying arms to Ukraine it was necessary to avoid further escalation. Therefore, Germany’s decision to refrain from supplying offensive weapons systems after the difficult decision to supply battle tanks is the right one.
