On Monday, Trudeau was asked if he would agree to transfer Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine if Germany lifted its veto on their re-export.

“We sent a huge number of different types of weapons, including an air defense system. We will consider all requests from Ukraine, but we have not yet reached the Leopard 2 tanks,” Trudeau replied.

At the same time, he added: “We are ready to provide Ukraine with what it needs to defeat Russia.”
