Germany has taken a stance of support for Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression, with Minister of Foreign Affairs Heiko Maas saying that Germany would not stand in the way of Poland sending tanks to Ukraine. This stance was echoed by France, with the two countries vowing to support Ukraine, including militarily.
Germany also said it would coordinate with its allies on decisions to send weapons to Ukraine. This comes in response to criticism from some quarters that Germany is not doing enough to support Ukraine.
However, Germany has been quick to point out that the situation is not as simple as some people make it out to be. The country has taken a diplomatic approach to the situation, hoping to de-escalate tensions between Ukraine and Russia.
Germany’s stance of support for Ukraine is a welcome development, and one that will be closely monitored in the coming months.
