▪️equipment for the integration of Western air defense..
‼️ German government officials have approved the supply of Leopard 1 tanks to Ukraine from industrial stocks, and are also negotiating the purchase of 15 Gepard tanks from Qatar for supply to Kyiv…
Victory will be our 🇺🇦💛💙
But … I wish I didn’t have to ask myself a thousand times why such weapons couldn’t have been delivered months ago already. Why still no planes or ATACMS? I know a lot about various wars from the past. To my knowledge, there is no precedent in which the United States told the besieged country not to attack the hostile country. Even so, giving Ukraine the right material to defeat mafia land is a must. We’re playing with real lives here, brave Ukrainian soldiers, women, children … everyone is in danger and too many are dying each and every day.
We have no moral right to make Ukraine fight with one hand tied behind its back!
