Here we go again. Weapon swaps to the Ukrainian military from NATO complications preventing transfer in a direct manner.
From "UKRAINIAN NEWS" the story by Таня Герасимова 31 MAY 2022.
"Greece Will Supply Ukraine With Tanks In Exchange For German Equipment - Scholz"
"Greece is going to supply Ukraine with Soviet-era tanks instead of modern German-made infantry fighting vehicles, said German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Politico Europe correspondent Hans von der Burchard reported this on Twitter by on Tuesday, May 31."
“Breaking: Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Germany will implement 'Ringtausch' tank swap with Greece, which will deliver older Soviet-era tanks to Ukraine and get modern German infantry fighting vehicles as replacement."
"At that, Reuters reports that Scholz didn't give any details as to what kind of infantry fighting vehicles Berlin will hand over to Greece - or what kind of weapons Athens will pass on to Kyiv."
The Greek army DOES NOT HAVE any sort of Soviet-era armor [tanks] in their inventory. The Greek army DOES HAVE Soviet-era infantry-fighting vehicles of the BMP-1 OST [East German?] that evidently have been modified to carry a 23 mm cannon.
NOT TANKS AS WE UNDERSTAND THAT WORD TANK! AN INFANTRY FIGHTING VEHICLE [IFV].
This should be understood as part of the Marder controversy? Germans going to send Marder IFV to the Ukrainian but sans ammunition as per contractual agreement with the Swiss?
