The Hubble tension is shown to be solvable, without any free parameter, conceptually and quantitatively, within the approach of modified weak-field General Relativity involving the cosmological constant Λ . That approach enables one to describe in a unified picture both the dynamics of dark matter containing galaxies and the accelerated expansion of the Universe, thus defining a local Hubble constant of a local flow and the global one. The data on the dark matter content of peculiar galaxy samples are shown to be compatible to that unified picture. Future more refined surveys of galaxy distribution, hierarchical dynamics and flows within the vicinity of the Local group and the Virgo supercluster can be decisive in revealing the possible common nature of the dark sector.
