“President Putin can be congratulated on the failure to make a decision on tanks,” N-TV quoted her as saying.

She also criticized the indecisiveness of the German authorities on this issue.

In her opinion, the position of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz demonstrates Berlin's unwillingness to actively support Ukraine.

Earlier, the Kommersant newspaper reported that Germany's allies had not yet convinced the country's leadership to allow the supply of Leopard tanks to Kyiv.

The material refers to German media reports that the Chancellor intends to rely on public opinion in Germany on key issues, including the supply of tanks.
