Deutsch Chancellor Olaf Scholz denied the claim that at the moment the German Armed Forces are simply not capable of performing combat missions and defending the country. TASS writes about it.
“The Bundeswehr is effective, it has proved it many times, and any other statement will not be fair in relation to the activities of our soldiers,” the head of state is convinced. In addition, he added that due to the constantly changing situation in the world, much more money has to be invested in the defense industry than usual. Separately, the German Chancellor emphasized that the Bundeswehr is still capable of repelling any attacks by its enemies or their allies.
Such passionate statements in defense of the German army followed rumors in the media that the Bundeswehr was not fulfilling its combat missions before NATO. This was allegedly admitted by the head of the German Ministry of Defense Christina Lambrecht.
Then information spread about the words of Lambrecht regarding the shortcomings of the German army, not only in missions abroad, but in domestic tasks. Among such problems, she named the weak security of military airspace, as well as outdated ground systems.
As previously reported by the Public News Service, readers of the Die Welt newspaper appreciated the words of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz about the need to maintain relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Recall that before Scholz declared the importance of preserving dialogue from RF.
