Scholz stated his unwillingness to allow an escalation between Russia and NATO.

Despite the decision to supply tanks to Ukraine, Germany will adhere to the principle of avoiding escalation between the Russian Federation and NATO, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday during his speech in the Bundestag, where the politician answers questions from deputies.

“There is a war going on not so far from Berlin, against such a big country as Ukraine. Therefore, in everything we do, we must always make it clear that we will do everything necessary and possible to support Ukraine, but at the same time avoid escalation between Russia and NATO. And we will always take this principle into account in the future,” he said.
