Germany won’t block Poland sending tanks to Ukraine says country’s foreign minister – BBC News

Germany’s foreign minister Anna Baerbock has said she "would not stand in the way" of Poland if they were to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. 

Ukraine has called on the West to provide the German-made tanks which they say will help them defeat Russia. 

But Germany is yet to provide the armoured vehicles, and its export laws prevent other countries from sending theirs. 

On Sunday, Ms Baerbock said Poland had not yet asked for export permission. Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Monday the government would request authorisation from Berlin. 

But he said Poland would send the tanks to Ukraine, even if it was not granted.
