She asked why the US authorities don’t send tanks to their southern border, where the US is invaded every day.
“We serve the American people, who pay our tanks and our salaries, not Zelensky,” he wrote on Twitter (the social network is blocked in the Russian Federation).
Earlier, Republican Lindsey Graham called on the White House to transfer Abrams tanks to Ukraine as this would force Germany to send Leopard tanks, RIA Novosti reported.
According to media reports, Olaf Scholz told Joe Biden that Germany would supply Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks only if the American side transferred Abrams tanks to Kyiv. However, later in Berlin he denied the information that such conditions were proposed.
Meanwhile, Zeit wrote that a scandal arose in the German Bundestag over the issue of the supply of Leopard tanks. Then the head of the Bundestag’s defense committee, Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, demanded that Scholz explain why he did not want to supply the Ukrainian Armed Forces with tanks. In response, she was accused of pushing Germany into a military conflict.
