“This is needed to stop Russian aggression, help Ukraine and restore peace in Europe quickly”
Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania have jointly called on Germany to send its Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine.
“We, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia Foreign Ministers, call on Germany to provide Leopard tanks to Ukraine now. This is needed to stop Russian aggression, help Ukraine and restore peace in Europe quickly. Germany as the leading European power has special responsibility in this regard,” wrote Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis on Twitter.
Reuters reports the statement came a day after Germany and Western allies reached no decision on whether Berlin would agree to send its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine or permit other countries that have them to do so.
