Germany to Decide Fate of Leopard Tanks Transfer to Ukraine: Poland Expects Quick Approval
Polish leader eager to send tanks to Ukraine
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki declared Tuesday that he is eager to set an example by sending Leopard tanks to Ukraine and that he will meet with German politicians in Berlin to come to an agreement on the matter.
“I cannot imagine the situation where there is not a quick consensus”, said Morawiecki during a press briefing before flying to Berlin.
Poland initially wanted to deliver the Leopard vehicles to Ukraine, but needed approval from Germany, as the tanks are German made.
President Andrzej Duda addressed the matter last week, claiming that Poland wanted to send the tanks as part of an international coalition.
Marcin Przydacz, adviser to the Polish presidency, told Radio Zet that Poland “is willing to send Leopards, to set an example”.
The leader met with various German politicians in hope of achieving an agreement on sending tanks to Ukraine.
