NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg urged allies on Tuesday to speed up deliveries of heavy and more advanced weapons to repel Russian forces in Ukraine and expressed confidence that a decision on sending battle tanks to Kyiv would come soon.
Stoltenberg was speaking in Berlin alongside Germany’s new defense minister, Boris Pistorius, who said his government would act quickly on the tanks if a consensus were to be found.
Pressure has been building on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government to send its Leopard tanks to Ukraine and allow other countries to do the same — under military procurement rules, Germany must authorize any re-exports.

But Scholz’s Social Democrat party has been holding back, wary of sudden moves that could cause Moscow to escalate further.
However, Germany’s foreign minister seems to be different.
Annalena Baerbock called for unity amongst Western allies in the midst of the debate over tank deliveries to Ukraine from Germany.
“We are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other,” said Baerbock at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg on Tuesday.
She conceded that Germany should do more, saying: “Yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on tanks,” but stressed that unity amongst allies was still the most “critical part” of supporting Ukraine against Russia.
“We are fighting a War against Russia” …
She actually spelled it out?
What happened to “We’re helping poor victim Ukraine to defend itself against Russia”?
This war took too many lives and is taking the world down a very bad path.
It needs to end now!
