Former German President Joachim Gag assessed that the first effects of the “turnaround” announced by President Olaf Scholes as a result of Russia’s attack on Ukraine are already visible. A few days ago, heavy weapons from Germany were delivered to Ukraine for the first time.
“Chancellor Scholes may act slowly, but he is working,” Joachim Kock said in the “Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung” on Saturday. Former President German Shoals’ decision to supply heavy weapons was assessed Ukrainemeaning that a “turnaround” in German politics is “a clear signal that change is being taken seriously and is not a return to wishful thinking.”
A few days ago, heavy weapons from Germany were delivered to Ukraine for the first time – seven Panzerhaubitze self-propelled howitzers.
Asked by RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland (RND) on Saturday about the delivery of German armored personnel carriers and tanks to Ukraine, Green Party leader Omid Nuripour said, “The situation is constantly changing, so the approach to individual weapons systems may change. Weapon types will be taken “only in cooperation with international allies.”
Koch calls for Germany to be active on the international stage
In an interview with the “Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung”, Gauck ruled that “Germany must recognize its leadership role in Europe, because Germany is not about hegemony, but about cooperation and partnership.”
While serving as federal president, Gauck has repeatedly called for Germany to play a more decisive role on the international stage. – The Federal Republic, as a good partner, should be involved earlier, more decisively and more specifically – Gauck already argued during the Munich Security Conference in 2014.
