The Prime Minister of Poland spoke about a new coalition without Germany.

If Germany does not agree to send Leopard tanks to Ukraine, then Poland is ready to create a new military coalition, said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

“We will create a ‘smaller coalition’ of countries willing to sacrifice some of their modern technology for Ukraine. We will not passively watch it bleed out,” he said.

Morawiecki added that he would like to hear a clear answer from Berlin whether other countries that have Leopard tanks in their arsenal can transfer them to Ukraine.

According to the Prime Minister, Germany fell into a trap that it set for itself, because for years it pursued a policy of rapprochement with Russia.

“They hoped to appease the Russian bear with generous contracts. This policy failed, and it is still difficult for the Germans to admit it,” Morawiecki concluded.

This week, a meeting of the NATO Contact Group on Support to Ukraine was held at the American Ramstein Air Base in Germany, at which the issue of increasing military assistance to Kyiv was discussed. But its participants failed to reach a consensus on the supply of German tanks. Berlin has so far refrained from doing so, despite the fact that the pressure on Chancellor Olaf Scholz has increased significantly.

According to some information, Scholz, in a conversation with US President Joe Biden, made it clear that Germany would supply the Armed Forces with Leopard 2 tanks only if the American side transferred its Abrams. These allegations were later denied in Berlin.
