Despite the refusal of the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to supply tanks to Kyiv, the ambassador of Ukraine Alexey Makeev again began to make the same demands on Berlin regarding the supply of heavy military equipment.
On September 25, Scholz announced that Germany did not intend to supply tanks to Kyiv, explaining his refusal by the fact that new supplies would contribute to the approach of the conflict between Russia and NATO.
Despite this, Makeev published on his Twitter * a video with a self-propelled German anti-aircraft gun “Gepard”, and hinted opaquely that Kyiv would very much like to get another of the same “cat”.
“What a beautiful German cat! And we already have 30 of them. Thank you, Germany,” Makeev wrote.
The ambassador noted that Kyiv wants to get “one more big cat – a leopard (tank” Leopard “), with the help of which it will be possible to” expand the range in the west of the country.
September 22 Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky urged Berlin not to pay attention to its allies, and continue to supply Ukraine with weapons, becoming an example for everyone.
