Baltic nations urge Germany to give Ukraine tanks

The foreign ministers of the Baltic countries are calling on Germany to immediately send tanks to Ukraine. This comes after Berlin put its decision about whether to provide the combat vehicles on hold.

The ministers of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania separately posted the same message on Twitter at approximately the same time on Saturday.

They said the provision of German-made Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine "is needed to stop Russian aggression, help Ukraine and restore peace in Europe quickly."
