Germany has delivered Leopard tanks to Ukraine: Scholz

Germany has delivered promised Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine, Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Monday….

“Yes, we delivered Leopard tanks as we announced,” Scholz told a press conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in Rotterdam when asked to confirm a report in news outlet Spiegel.

The report said Berlin had delivered 18 of the advanced Leopards, with the last of the tanks having left Germany at the end of last week, before being handed over to Ukraine at the border.

About 40 Marder infantry fighting vehicles have also arrived in Ukraine, Spiegel said, adding Berlin was keeping the route of the deliveries secret for security reasons.


Ukrainian soldiers were trained on the 2A6s, the most advanced of the Leopard models, on German military bases.
