This is a turning point in the war

 and the need for a significant increase in support for Ukraine. If we want to find a peaceful solution through negotiations tomorrow, we need to provide more weapons today," the NATO Secretary General said.

Stoltenberg also reported that consultations are ongoing regarding whether Germany should lift the ban on the transfer of its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, or at least allow them to be transferred from allied countries.  

The newspaper noted that attention will be focused on Germany's decision regarding tanks on January 20 during the regular meeting of defense ministers of 50 countries in the Rammstein format.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is currently avoiding a direct answer to questions about tanks for Ukraine.

It will be recalled that Poland is gathering a coalition of countries that will transfer Leopard tanks to Ukraine.

Warsaw itself decided to transfer 14 such German tanks to the ZSU.
