German Ambassador to Ukraine: Germany will continue to supply weapons to Ukraine

Germany will continue supplying weapons to Ukraine; the German government is actively engaged in this issue and is discussing with Ukrainian partners the need for armaments.

In an interview with Ukrinform, the Ambassador of Germany to Ukraine, Anka Feldhusen, reported this, commenting on the German contribution to Ukraine's victory on the battlefield.

"I think my country was, is, and will be Ukraine's most reliable. We have been helping in all sectors since 2014 except arms, but we are doing that now. Before the interview, I looked through the list of the weapons we have already delivered and will still deliver — it is still impressive. If you remember that until February 24, we said that we would never do this in principle," said Feldhusen.

She understands Ukrainians' disappointment with the speed of German arms deliveries and our communication.

"It also disappoints me sometimes. But if you look at the facts, now we, like other countries, also supply modern weapons that help Ukraine… Yesterday I saw a video of Ukrainian teams working with Panzerhaubitze, and they say that the russians now do not dare to approach their positions as before. It is already a small success, and we must continue to work on it," the German ambassador noted.

Concerning a certain decrease in German society's support for the provision of weapons to Ukraine, which is recorded by public opinion polls, the diplomat advised not to pay much attention to them.

"They reflect public sentiment one day, and the next, they can change. The fact is that the German government will continue to supply weapons to Ukraine. We are very actively thinking about it and are discussing with our Ukrainian partners the need for armaments," the German ambassador assured.
