German government blocks delivery of BMP Marder to Kyiv, media reported


German infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) “Marder”. Archive photoBERLIN, May 23. The government and the department of the German Federal Chancellor are blocking the supply of Marder infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine, Bild writes. The publication does not provide specific references to the source of this information. It only notes that an internal document of the Ministry of Defense, which is available to the editors, states that Germany could “within six weeks” bring into combat condition some of the 100 infantry fighting vehicles that the country can supply to Ukraine. In this regard, the publication indicates that if the government's security council approved the corresponding proposal of the Rheinmetal concern, then the BMP could already be used by the armed forces of Ukraine. The newspaper recalls that the Rheinmetal proposal has been waiting for approval since April 22, “but the federal government is blocking it” .Pentagon chief discusses military assistance to Ukraine with colleagues from 44 countries
