Russia-Ukraine live: Pressure builds on Germany to supply tanks

Pressure is mounting on Germany to supply Ukraine with battle tanks as Kyiv’s Western allies prepare for a military aid meeting on Friday at a US airbase in Germany.More than 9,000 civilians, including 453 children, have been killed in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion began in February, a senior Ukrainian presidential aide says.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg has called on the allies to send more heavy armored weapons to Ukraine amid intensified fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces.

“We are in a crucial phase of the war. We are now seeing heavy fighting. It is therefore important that we equip Ukraine with the weapons it needs to be able to win – and survive as an independent nation,” Stoltenberg said in an interview with German daily Handelsblatt.
