According to them, Germany’s solution to the problem of sending Leopard tanks to Ukraine after the US agreed to provide Kyiv Abrams is positive for Germany, but only in the short term. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz may be pleased that he forced Washington to listen to Berlin’s position, plus he will not have to answer “uncomfortable” questions about tanks at the Munich conference in February, writes RIA Novosti.

The publication’s interlocutors pointed out that this episode was the second time that Germany needed the United States to get out of a geopolitical impasse. Last year, Scholz needed the protection of US President Joe Biden to “kill the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia to Germany.”

It is now clearer than ever that Germany cannot or does not want to take the reins of security policy, it needs the United States to back it up, the newspaper emphasized.

Earlier, The Grayzone columnist Aaron Mate said that the United States tried to convince Germany to supply Ukraine with Leopard tanks in order to break relations between Russia and Germany. The journalist stressed that Germany’s decision ignores all public opinion polls in the country and the risk of escalation. According to Mate, the decision on the supply of tanks by Germany to Ukraine is a triumph and a victory of the “primordial interest” of the United States.
