“Ukraine is bleeding”: Ambassador Melnyk to Germany on Marder supplies


Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk has once again criticized the host country’s government for hesitating to provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces, suffering heavy losses, with armored combat vehicles that have even been prepared for shipment by manufacturers.

The diplomat expressed his misunderstanding on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

“Dear Government, why are you denying the Ukrainian army these Marder infantry fighting vehicles, which are already available at (Rheinmetall) concern, while Ukraine is bleeding in Donbas? 109 days of the Russian war of annihilation. WHY?” the ambassador said.

The post contains a link to a Bild article, which states that the German concern is ready to send to Ukraine the repaired and updated Marder infantry fighting vehicles, which the Bundeswehr no longer employs.

It should be noted that this is not the first time that the Concern has come up with a proposal to the German government to transfer the equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, for weeks, the authorities have been dragging with the approval, inventing other schemes.

Melnyk is a vocal critic of the German government, which he criticizes for its unwillingness to provide Ukraine with heavy weapons or for slowing down the implementation of the already approved decisions. At the same time, earlier, the ambassador said that Berlin would ship to Ukraine a batch of howitzers – even earlier than initially expected.
