After weeks of denials, Germany has announced it will send 14 modern Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine for use in its war against Russia.

The U.S. is expected to make a similar announcement on Wednesday about its Abrams tanks, all of which the Ukrainian government sees as vital to countering Russian forces occupying and disputing territory.

With this in mind, the Russian ambassador in Washington said “Another blatant provocation” Y Germany’s decision was deemed to “bring no good” and to leave “An Enduring Brand” On relations between Berlin and Moscow.

Steve Rosenberg, the BBC’s correspondent in the Russian capital, said the German announcement would be used by Vladimir Putin’s government to reinforce the narrative that it is waging war against Russia on Ukrainian soil, under US leadership.
