Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced the decision to send 14 tanks on Wednesday at a cabinet meeting and allowed other countries to send theirs too .
Other European countries which have the German-made tanks will also be allowed to send their vehicles to Ukraine after Germany granted permission to do so.
President Zelensky thanked the German Chancellor during a phone call between the two leaders.
Kremlin has branded the move as extremely dangerous.
