After weeks of geopolitical squabbling, a major moment in the war in Ukraine has arrived: Germany has announced it will provide Leopard 2 tanks to Kyiv's troops.

CNN's Tim Lister, Fred Pleitgen, Matthias Somm, Oren Liebermann, Natasha Bertrand, Christian Edwards and Stephanie Halasz contributed reporting.
