According to the French interlocutor, according to Leclerc “the issue is complicated and has not yet been resolved.”

“But we are thinking about it. Let’s see what will be decided at a joint meeting of the French and German governments,” the French official said.

On January 15, Great Britain, together with 14 Challenger 2 tanks, promised Ukraine 30 AS90 self-propelled guns. This is obviously not enough for official Berlin to supply Leopards.

On January 18, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that in a conversation with the US President Joe Biden Scholz “made it clear that Germany could give in to pressure to supply [танков Leopard]only if the US supplies Abrams main battle tanks.” Washington reacted.
