Almost half of the German population supports the supply of modern weapons to Ukraine.

Mariya Koval-Honchar, an expert of the Ukrainian Prism Foreign Policy Council, said this on the air of an information telethon.

"The latest statistics show that 48% of the German population is in favor of supplying Ukraine with modern weapons - battle tanks. And 41% of the population is against it," she said.

According to the expert, if you look at the data of this poll and compare them with the political sympathies of the respondents, then among those who support the Green Party, which is represented by German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock, 70% were in favor of providing tanks to Ukraine.

  • German Leopard tanks are recognized as one of the best in the world, but the German authorities refuse to grant permission to transfer them to Ukraine. According to experts, the German government is afraid of Russia's reaction to the decision to transfer heavy weapons to Ukraine.
  • On December 11, Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Oleksiy Makeev said that the German authorities promised to provide Ukraine with more weapons and ammunition. At the same time, he added that diplomats continue negotiations on the supply of Marder and Leopard tanks.
