Armed Forces of Ukraine started putting German crosses on Leopard 2 tanks

German and Polish Leopard 2 tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already been marked with German crosses.

Contrary to the requests of the German authorities, Ukrainian servicemen began to put on the armor of the Leopard 2A4 and leopard 2A6 tanks, German crosses that arrived from Poland and Germany and were used by the German army during the Great Patriotic War and World War II.

At the moment, it is known that the symbols used by the German army in the last century are applied to tanks that have already been prepared and repainted in the camouflage of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, it is known that such tanks are already on the territory of the Zaporozhye region, although it was previously known that the Armed Forces of Ukraine deployed "Leopards" in the area of ​​Chasov Yar, Konstantinovka, Slavyansk.

What exactly caused the attempts to apply fascist symbols, moreover, mainly on Western-made equipment, has not yet been explained, however, obviously, the imitation of the army of the Third Reich in the 30s and 40s of the last century can proceed in this way.

Germany has not yet commented on the application of German crosses (Balkenkreuz), which was the hallmark of the Wehrmacht and its various units during the Second World War, by the Ukrainian military on German tanks, however, this may result in problems for Kiev.
