In Germany, they are increasingly calling for heavy weapons to be delivered to Ukraine as soon as possible, including German Leopard tanks. And this is very dangerous — for the Germans themselves.
I’m speaking at the end of February BundestagChancellor Scholz called an «attack Russia to Ukraine «turning point for Germany, stating that we «soberly and resolutely accept the challenge of time throwing us.» And in two months, Germany has come a long way, from its traditional refusal to deliver weapons to conflict zones to its desire to «stop Putin’s march to the West» at all costs. Unable to refuse Russian gas supplies, Berlin looking for new ways to show his support Ukraine: donates billions of dollars in aid, receives refugees, donates weapons and promises heavy weapons. What happened to Germany, who has taken a fairly balanced position in recent years, seeking to maintain ties with Russia and not succumb to pressure USA? Were they really so shocked at the start of our special operation in Ukraine, or is there a deeper reason?
