Poland Officially Requests Germany's Permission To Transfer Leopard Tanks To Ukraine

The NATO chief has urged other countries to prepare their armoured vehicles.

Poland has sent an official request to Germany for permission to transfer Leopard 2 tanks to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said this on Twitter.

"The Germans have already received our request for consent to transfer Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. I also ask the German side to join the coalition of countries supporting Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks. This is our common cause, after all, it is about the security of the whole of Europe!" Blaszczak wrote.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg also said that Berlin's permission to supply Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks "is coming soon", so the countries that have this equipment in their arms and plan to hand it over can already prepare for it.
