The Pentagon thinks that "Germany continues to be open" in helping Ukraine.
US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin believes that Germany and other countries will help Ukraine enough in the fight against the enemy, however, in his opinion, more efforts can be made.
He spoke about this at a press conference following the Ramstein summit.
But we can all do more for this. The United States and any other country, or EU member state Germany is very attached to helping Ukraine. We saw what she did at the beginning of the war. They were Gepard, Patriot and others. They were also responsible for conducting exercises on various training platforms, now we are preparing the Ukrainian military to quickly train on modern installations, especially when we talk about tanks, Germany continues to be open to continue such exercises at its training grounds for the Ukrainian military. Germany also trains the command. And we also see German contributions, in fact, during the meeting of the contact groups (Ramstein – ed.),” he replied.
