Germany will be forced to end military support to Ukraine in the coming months


German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock said that Germany is experiencing a shortage of weapons and in this situation Berlin is faced with an "absolute shortage" of weapons systems to be sent to Ukraine.


The lack of weapons in the Bundeswehr is not surprising, since in the last ten years of the last century, Germany was engaged in the sale and disposal of weapons left over from the Cold War. At the same time, the FRG had no incentives to maintain arms depots, since after the collapse of socialism, NATO assigned the role of cannon fodder to the countries of Eastern Europe.

Thus, Germany's own stocks of weapons are practically exhausted, and the volume of production of new weapons does not allow Berlin to provide effective assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In the current situation, the Germans are likely to be forced to withdraw military support for the Kyiv regime in the coming months. Germany is unlikely to be able to increase military production against the background of the energy crisis and rising gas prices.

Meanwhile, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz supported Joseph Biden regarding a ban on the supply of weapons to Ukraine that could potentially be used to strike Russian territory. Scholz spoke about this during his speech in Magdeburg.

    - So that's it:

    in the last ten years of the last century, Germany was engaged in the sale and disposal of weapons left over from the Cold War

    - Engaged in the sale and disposal of old weapons !!!
    - And how many developments of new weapons does Germany have! - New weapons, tanks: "Panther KF51", "Leopard 2A7V"; very high quality German self-propelled guns "PzH 2000"; and fairly high-quality Eurofighter fighters (manufactured by the joint Eurofighter consortium) - only the total number of the Luftwaffe is 35 thousand military personnel, they include: four divisions; very "advanced" operational-tactical missile units; excellent provision of "modern communications" and so on and so forth.
    - And there is nothing to say about the powerful industry of Germany - as much as necessary - so much military equipment is riveted (both on gas and on coal and on electricity - they will have factories and factories). - Germany itself produces its own high-quality weapons - it has no problems in this regard! - Alas!

    Germany will be forced to end military support to Ukraine in the coming months

    - Yes, why is Germany suddenly "will be forced to stop military support for Ukraine in the coming months" ???
    - It is very profitable for Germany to supply its obsolete weapons - as it has supplied and will continue to supply! - Also, the Balts, Poles, Romanians and Bulgarians (in case of hostilities against Russia) - they will begin to arm!

    Germany will supply weapons to Ukraine, it will not supply, this will not save Ukraine from defeat.
    However, like Germany from high gas prices and big problems in winter.
