"I don't want to put diplomatic pressure on the German government, but I want Germany to provide what it has as soon as possible. Because we don't have any more time to wait for weapons," the ambassador added.

Details: Makieiev said Ukraine needs more anti-aircraft systems, howitzers, Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns and ammunition.

"In addition, we are still talking about the supply of Marder and Leopard tanks. However, the decision on this remains with the German government," the Ukrainian diplomat said.
