The Leopard tank was designed as a competitor to the Russian tanks used in the invasion

An adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the West’s “hesitation” about sending additional weapons to Ukraine “is killing more of our people”.

“Every day of delay means the death of Ukrainians,” Mykhailo Podolyak wrote on Twitter.

His comments come after Ukraine’s defense minister said he had a “frank discussion” with his German counterpart about German Leopard 2 tanks that Kyiv urgently requires to counter Russian armor.

Germany has insisted it is not blocking deliveries of German-made Leopard tanks, which other countries want to send.
