Germany will lastly authorise tank deliveries to Ukraine after refusing to produce lethal support

Germany is predicted to lastly authorise the supply of heavy weapons to Ukraine after weeks of dithering that has dented its status on the world stage and led to questions on its dedication to European safety.

Authorities sources informed AFP on Tuesday that Olaf Scholz will authorise the supply of ‘tanks’ to Ukraine, with an announcement due at a gathering of international ministers happening at Ramstein air base later immediately.

Individually, German media reported that the nation will ship Gepard anti-aircraft techniques to assist within the battle in opposition to Russia – although it was not instantly clear whether or not that’s included in, or separate to, the ‘tanks’ pledge.
