Europe News Desk!!! Addressing the Munich Security Conference (MSC), German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that his country would very soon deploy Leopard tanks in Ukraine. In his speech at the MSC on Friday, days before the first anniversary of the Russian invasion, the chancellor called for Russian President Vladimir Putin to show that Germany and its allies will not give up on Ukraine, the BBC reported. Putin’s revisionism will not win. . Ukraine is more united than ever. The European Union is united and behind Ukraine’s future EU membership and NATO is growing by two new members.
It is not the delivery of our weapons that is prolonging the war, he said. Conversely, the sooner President Putin realizes that he will not achieve his imperialist goals, the more likely that the war will soon end and Russian troops will withdraw. The MSC, an annual gathering of leaders, officials and diplomats, also saw the presence of French President Emmanuel Macron, US Vice President Kamala Harris, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken as well as 30 European heads of government. Germany, which has come under increasing pressure in recent months over its apparent reluctance to send arms to Ukraine, agreed in January to allow German-made, Leopard tanks to be shipped to the war-torn country, the BBC reports. . It also allowed other countries to send their Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, which was until now banned under export rules. No Russian official has been invited to the conference.
