Since the beginning of Russia's military operation in Ukraine, many countries, including Germany, have revised their positions regarding the supply of lethal weapons to Kyiv. Thus, at the end of February, Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that the FRG would send weapons to Ukraine, including 1,000 anti-tank guns and 500 Stinger missiles.
The late German agency DPA, citing sources, reported that Germany had transferred Ukraine 1,500 Strela man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems, 100 MG3 machine guns, 8 million rounds of ammunition for firearms. It also became known about Berlin's intention to supply Kyiv with 2,000 Panzerfaust anti-tank missiles.
Nevertheless, already on April 19, Scholz announced that the Bundeswehr had exhausted the limit on the supply of weapons to Ukraine from its reserves. At the same time, on April 28, the Bundestag supported by a majority vote a document calling on the government to supply heavy weapons to Ukraine. Burbock also made a call to supply additional weapons to Kyiv more than once.
