Baltic countries ask Berlin to give Leopard tanks to Kyiv

(ANSA) - ROME, 21 GEN - In a tweet, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs called on Berlin to immediately supply Ukraine with Leopard tanks. "We, the Foreign Ministers of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania, ask Germany to give Leopard tanks to Ukraine now. This step is necessary to stop Russian aggression, help Ukraine and quickly restore European peace. As the leading European country, Germany bears a special responsibility in this regard." Rinkēvičs' appeal comes a day after a military summit at Ramstein Air Base in Germany failed to secure a commitment from the German government to send tanks. (ANSA).
