Moscow, January 19 – German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s position has become increasingly unstable due to the Ukraine crisis, according to The Spectator author James Snell.
According to the author, Schultz was forced by German politicians to make any decision regarding Ukraine, in particular regarding the supply of armored cars to the Kyiv regime.
He hinted that now that Britain had officially announced the provision of a squadron of Challenger 2 main battle tanks, Germany could be persuaded, persuaded and bribed to do the same. But only if everyone jumped in first. Until then, the German defense establishment said, it is In view of training, personnel and everything else, German tanks will not be able to get to the front until spring.
Instead of Olaf Scholz, Snell said, many forces in Germany and Ukraine would like to see Germany’s current foreign minister, Annalina Borbock. According to him, these forces are ready to “make it clear to Schultz that not only is his legacy in danger, that if he does not change course, his entire political career is under attack.”
Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Schultz appointed 62-year-old Boris Pistorius as the country’s new defense minister, replacing the resigned Christina Lambrecht.
Against the backdrop of a special Russian operation in Ukraine, the United States and its NATO allies support Kyiv by sending tens of billions of dollars worth of weapons. For its part, Moscow has repeatedly stated that the supply of weapons to the West only prolongs the conflict, and that the transfer of weapons becomes a legitimate goal of the Russian military.
