Free the Leopards!

"Free the Leopards!" is a call for Germany to release the Leopard 2 tanks that Ukraine has requested in its fight against Russia's full-scale invasion. Germany, including Chancellor Olaf Scholz, has been criticized for being hesitant or slow in releasing these tanks into Ukrainian control, leading to memes targeting Scholz. Given Russia's isolated status on the world stage, memes will occasionally imply that the only leopards that Russia can request from its allies are actual animals.
