'Give us Leopard tanks,' Ukraine protesters tell EU

STORY: Germany's Leopard tanks, fielded by armies across Europe, are widely seen as the best fit for Ukraine, but Berlin must authorize their sale and has yet to do so.

"Ukraine needs Leopards," read one of the banners held by protesters following a call on social media by an informal Ukraine support group called "Support Ukraine."

"It's not a matter of territories, it's what happens to our people and in order to help us liberate our people, we need to have aggressive, offensive weapons," said Lesya Magas, who moved from Ukraine to Belgium two years ago.

She also called on the ministers to ban the import of Russian diamonds and lower the price cap for Russian oil imports.
