Ukraine is trying to get air defense and demining systems from Germany
Ukraine is trying to get some types of weapons from Germany. According to the German edition Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung (FAS), we can talk about air defense and demining systems from the presence of the German army.

According to the publication, Kiev needs “defensive weapon” to protect the Black Sea coast from “Russian attacks”. Ukraine would like, for Germany to supply the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense with something from “air defense systems” and “mine clearance equipment”, no exact data. maybe, that the Ukrainian request contains a more detailed description “wishlist”, and a wider list, but nothing is said about it.

In Berlin itself, they reacted differently to Kiev's request. If German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas strongly opposes, then Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer is in favor of supply. However, this lady always breathed unevenly towards Russia, stating several times about the need to talk with Moscow “position of strength”. The Bundestag has not yet decided. It seems that it is not good to refuse, on the other hand – the systems “for defense”.

Will or not start deliveries of arms to Kiev Berlin, it is not known for certain, but earlier Germany had already refused Ukraine's request to supply the Ukrainian fleet with used German corvettes. How many ships Kiev requested and on what conditions is not reported. And why does the Navy have German corvettes, when they are well supplied with boats from the USA and Great Britain.
