Rally against supply of German tanks to Kiev held in Munich

A demonstration against the supply of German tanks and weapons to Ukraine – organised by Muenchen steht auf – took place last night in Munich (Federal State of Bavaria) in the south of Germany, TASS reports


A video taken during the unauthorised rally has been posted by the organisers on the Telegram.

A column of hundreds of residents of the Bavarian capital marched through the city behind the drummers. Activists gathered in the central square of Munich in front of the Town Hall, keeping posters calling for peace and criticising the supply of weapons to Ukraine in their hands.

On the eve of the action, its organisers said that ‘only peace can be the theme of the march’.

Representatives of the movement advocate, among other things, the establishment of ‘a world without weapons’ in Ukraine and ‘the end of the economic war as another form of hostility’.

Earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers of Germany announced that it would transfer 14 Leopard 2A6 tanks to Ukraine. In addition, Berlin will allow other countries to re-export them. Russian Ambassador to Germany Sergei Nechaev said Berlin's decision to send tanks to the Kiev authorities was ‘extremely dangerous’, since it would ‘take the conflict to a new level of confrontation’.
