    Germany does not give weapons to Ukraine

    Under Angela Merkel (ex-chancellor), Germany did not support Ukraine with the supply of weapons, but relied only on the political process of resolving the conflict, in particular in the “Normandy format”.

    In addition, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas explained the reluctance to supply weapons to Ukraine by the fact that Germany is a mediator in the conflict. He said that if Berlin supplied weapons to Kiev, this would affect Russia’s attitude to the FRG as an intermediary country in the negotiations on the Donbass.

    And the German ambassador to Ukraine Anka Feldgusen said that Germany does not give Ukraine weapons, since the Germans consider Eastern Europe “a special part of the world” where German weapons and soldiers should not be. According to her, the issue of weapons for Ukraine is very difficult for Germany. To change opinion on it, you need to find a majority in the Bundestag. Under the new government, it is possible that something will change in this matter..
