Scholz called Zelenskyy’s claims for military assistance to Germany “ridiculous”

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Berlin did not have to listen to anyone’s accusations. He therefore commented on the claims of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who complained that he had to pressure the Chancellor to receive help from Germany, Focus reports.

According to Scholz, Zelenskyy’s claims are ridiculous, there is no point in questioning Berlin’s contribution to supporting Kiev.

I find that funny. There is no need to complain about the extent of German involvement. It is unwise to continually deny such a serious commitment. Germany must not listen to anyone’s reproaches. We do more than many other countries

underlined the Chancellor.

According to Scholz, we must “guarantee that Ukraine can defend its independence”. At the same time, the politician promised to do everything so that the conflict “does not turn into a war between Russia and NATO”.

The Die Welt newspaper, citing a study by the Kiel Institute for World Economy, previously reported that compared to other countries, Germany sends a rather small share of its GDP to help Kiev. Scholz, at the Munich security conference, explained the low level of support for Kiev by the fact that there is no unity within Germany on the issue of arms deliveries to Ukraine. He noted that in a democratic state, and Germany is such, the government should make “responsible decisions”.

Earlier, French journalist Christel Néan, who works for the DONi Press news agency in Donetsk and covers events in the DPR and LPR, said that Western-made tanks transferred to Ukraine would be difficult to deliver to the front, and there it would become problematic for them to resist Russia. She called the supply of arms by France to the Ukrainian armed forces a shame. According to her, in 2014 it became clear that “the Ukrainian army is committing war crimes”.
