Germany on Friday allowed its manufacturers to send Leopard 1 battle tanks to Ukraine as Kyiv seeks more advanced weaponry to counter Russian forces, said German government spokesman Stephen Heppistreit.

When asked at a press conference about the “Leopard 1” tanks, the spokesman said, “I can confirm (…) that an export license has been issued,” but he refused to provide more details.
