Lindsey Graham: Sending US, German tanks to Ukraine could determine fate of ... trends now
Republicans and even some Democrats are piling pressure on the Biden administration and on Germany's government to bolster Ukraine's military resistance with top-of-the-line tanks.
It comes amid a tense diplomatic standoff between Washington and Munich about who will agree to the massive weapons boost first - if at all.
Ukraine's government has been asking for battle tanks to help fight off Russia's troops since just after Vladimir Putin first ordered his invasion early last year.
'The debacle regarding sending tanks to Ukraine must end. It is impossible for Ukraine to expel Russia without tanks,' Graham said in a statement on Sunday upon his return.
