Berlin to provide Ukraine with anti-tank arms - Scholz

Germany will be sending 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 Stinger missiles to Ukraine in order to help with the ever more dangerous Russian onslaught, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stated in a Twitter post on Saturday. The move marks a significant turn in Berlin's attitude towards the Ukraine crisis, as until this point its assistance was limited to financial means, equipment and humanitarian aid.

“The Russian invasion of Ukraine marks a turning point. It is our duty to do our best to support Ukraine in defending itself against Putin’s invading army,” Scholz's post read.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky greeted Scholz's decision, tweeting: "Germany has just announced the provision of anti-tank grenade launchers and stinger missiles to Ukraine. Keep it up, Chancellor Olaf Scholz!"
