Swiss to sell back Leopard II tanks to help restock after Ukraine donations

  • Germany has requested that Switzerland sell back some of the Leopard II tanks it has in storage to Rheinmetall AG, and Switzerland has approved the decommissioning of 25 of these tanks for resale.
  • However, Switzerland has blocked requests from Germany, Denmark, and Spain to allow Swiss-made weaponry to go to Ukraine, citing Swiss neutrality. The blocking of re-exports has caused anger among some nations.
  • Despite concerns from the public, the Swiss defense minister has stated that supplying the tanks to Germany complies with Swiss neutrality law and is in the country's interest. The Swiss cabinet is expected to formally support the export of the Leopard IIs to Germany.
