lloyd austin. we don't have any time to waste the briefings. let today laid out clearly why the coming weeks will be so crucial for ukraine. so we gotta move at the speed of war. and i know that all the leaders leave today more resolved an error to support ukraine in his fight against russian aggression. the day kicked off with a surprise in a notable policy shift. germany, which had been criticized for refusing to send heavy weapons to ukraine, announced it would now send capehart anti aircraft systems the ambient, i don't think we've made the decision that it's now important to support. and he, i craft, offends us that can be done with a good part and is exactly what's on the list of what ukraine needs. and that is what we coordinated with. others are now making possible will continue doing next slide for not every one in berlin. welcome to decision. since miss increased,
3:03 am
i find it problematic. germany doesn't even have enough military equipment for itself in the case of protein totally losing control goiter. i think it's important . i also think that what the german government is doing is good. but i am also not sure if offering weapons is actually going to stop to war. as always fun, i didn't like the degree of hesitancy in the end. i would actually be for aggressive weapons, so heavy machinery across evil of, of him as a shrill is because 8. in his closing remarks often said the gathering between the us and its allies will not be the last. once a month. they'll me to discuss ukraine's defense needs to help them fight the russian invasion is spinning or late or early or i asked tina hughes washington correspondent, sumi selma's candor about the significance of this new regular meeting a foreign and defense officials from 40 different countries. well, i think it's pretty significant. i mean,
3:04 am
we heard secretary austin say that they would be meeting monthly and a contact group to ensure that these allies can further discuss how best to aid ukraine. and he called it a vehicle to intensify efforts and focus on winning the fight and struggles to come . and i think those words, paula really highlight the fact that the u. s. is well aware that ukraine needs support right now in defending itself, and will need more support down the road. and i think it also shows that secretary osman the u. s. they are pleased with this consolation with this exchange because it brought together not only nato allies, but also as we heard from secretary austin, a nations of good will. and there were concrete proposals on the table. you mentioned most notably from germany, of those 50 anti aircraft systems seen as an important step forward. well, we've seen a surprising german u turn on sending heavy weapons to ukraine. house the news being received in washington. it's going down pretty well as you might expect. pablo germany is seen as an important partner,
3:05 am
but one that hasn't always pulled its weight on defense and security. and it is believed that these systems, these cheetah systems, as they're called, will actually really help ukraine defend itself. and what we heard from secretary austin in germany was that ukraine can win this war in that time is of the essence . and that is something that i've heard echoed here in washington, where there really is a sense that the battle that's happening right now in the east and in the south of ukraine is decisive. and that ukraine needs heavy weapons quickly to be able to push back russian forces. of course, there is the understanding that this war could go on for several months to come, maybe even longer, but still the short term pushes seen as critical. and that's why germany's decision to provide these anti aircraft systems is welcome news to long lawmakers. a by the way on both sides of the aisle will more broadly speaking to me during the ukraine war, has the german government image been bruised among lawmakers in washington? you know, i think it's safe to say that there has been frustration with germany's position
3:06 am
and, but the biden administration itself has actually been pretty quiet overall, especially about germany's reluctance to supply heavy weapons to this point. actually most of the pressure it seems that has been on chance offshore is actually come from his own government from the german public, from ukraine. a but lawmaker is both republicans and democrats here, and analysts have been critical and indeed i spoke to an analyst last week, who said he was initially understanding is germany confronted its history. it's. it's long standing practices ost politic but that this patients was wearing thin. but if you're asking whether this image has been bruise long term, i think at this point, people here in washington, especially lawmakers, are just happy to have germany on board acting in line with its allies, especially also if it is able to wean itself off of russian gas and oil, i mean that is really seen as another important step in the west's ability to respond. going forward. dw washington correspondent to me, so much kind of speaking to me earlier. well, let's take
