The NYT has reported that US officials were clearly disappointed in talks with the German government this week.
“The Ukrainians make no secret that as much as they appreciate the support of their allies, what they receive is not enough. When Britain announced earlier this week that it was sending Challenger 2 tanks, Ukraine’s foreign minister and defence minister issued a joint statement thanking the British government, but adding that ‘it is not enough to achieve operational goals,'” the paper noted.
The publication also said that US officials were clearly disappointed with negotiations with the German government this week.
“Germany began by saying it would send Leopard tanks and would allow others to do so if the United States also sent its M-1 Abrams tank. The US refused, saying that such a tank is a gasoline eater because it uses a jet engine – and it requires such a supply line that it would not be useful in Ukrainian conditions,” the foreign publication’s journalists wrote.
The authors believe that while Germany has not said “yes” to sending Leopard tanks this week, it has also not said “no” – at least not yet. But Ukraine has very little time to launch a potentially decisive spring offensive, the piece summarised.
