Berlin has made it clear in talks with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky that it wants to give Ukraine more Gepard anti-aircraft armoured vehicles to defend against Russian attacks, German government spokesperson Steffen Hebestreit says.

Details on arms deliveries would only be made public once the handover had taken place, Hebestreit said.

He added that the tanks would not come from the German military, as it stopped making the tanks 10 years ago, but either from industrial stocks, or from Qatar, where World Cup stadiums are being protected against possible terrorist attacks from the air by German Gepards.

So far, 30 of the vehicles have been delivered to Ukraine from the stocks of arms manufacturer KMW.
