EU countries and their international partners together should try to do everything possible to make sure Ukraine will win its war against Russia, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said on Monday, APA reports citing Reuters.

"It's important that we as an international community do everything we can to defend Ukraine so that Ukraine wins and wins the right to live in peace and freedom again," Baerbock said before a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers.

Baerbock declined to make any specific comment when asked about the issue of exporting Leopold-2 battle tanks to Ukraine.

On Sunday, Baerbock opened the door to Germany, allowing Poland to send its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine in a possible breakthrough for Kyiv, which wants the tanks for its fight against Russia.
