The info not to miss
Germany finally gives the green light to the delivery of Leopard tanks. For several days, a certain cacophony reigned within the German executive. There were these words pronounced on French television by the German Foreign Minister on Sunday, who affirmed that Berlin would not oppose the delivery of Leopard tanks, of German design, by Poland. Then a slight decline, the next day, while the position of Chancellor Olaf Sholz remained until then difficult to define. Finally, the Chancellery has just announced on Wednesday that Berlin is indeed giving the green light to the delivery of Russian tanks. In the process, the Elysée communicated to welcome this announcement.
On the ground, fighting is raging in eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian army today confirmed the capture by the Russians of the town of Soledar. A strategic catch, for a city which holds the largest salt mines in Europe and which is located 15 km from Bakhmout, where the fighting is very intense. Moscow can in particular hope to curb Ukrainian supplies to the area.
