Scholz said that Russia forced Germany to supply weapons to Ukraine

Germany is helping Ukraine as Russian President Putin “endangered peace in Europe,” German Chancellor Scholz said

Russia leaves Germany no choice but to supply weapons to Ukraine. This was stated by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the congress of the Association of German Trade Unions.

“Putin leaves us no other choice,” he said.

According to Scholz, the Russian leader endangered peace in Europe, so Berlin is helping Kyiv.
The German chancellor stressed that Putin violated the principle of inviolability of borders in Europe “for his revanchist project of creating the Russian Empire.” If Berlin had accepted this, it would have strengthened Moscow even more, Scholz concluded.
The day before, the German Chancellor assured that the country would not make any decisions in which NATO would take part in the conflict in Ukraine.
