The expert noted that for Ukraine it would not be fatal, but painful.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will continue the policy of Angela Merkel and will not send the promised weapons to Ukraine to fight the Russian invaders.
This opinion was expressed by military expert Oleg Zhdanov in a conversation with Russian human rights activist Mark Feigin, TSN reports .
In his opinion, Scholz will make every effort to prevent German weapons from getting into Ukraine.
“I think that we are unlikely to receive German supplies. Most likely, this is the policy of Scholz himself. And he may not admit it publicly, but secretly he continues Merkel’s policy. Recently, Bild has actually directly accused Merkel and Scholz of ” laundering” of Russian money. Therefore, I believe that Scholz will do everything to prevent weapons from reaching Ukraine. For us, it will not be fatal, but painful. The only thing that we will have to compensate for these weapons with the help of supplies. military assistance from other Western countries,” Zhdanov said.
He noted that Ukraine could replace German weapons with American ones. According to him, now only financial assistance comes from Germany.
“Apart from money, nothing else is coming in now. There is some humanitarian aid … Germany comes out as if it pays off with money. True, the amounts there are significant, but nevertheless, sometimes we need weapons more. When the Cheetahs were promised, this is military Air defense, this is what we urgently needed, because Russian aviation is working very hard on our positions, but neither “Cheetahs” nor “Leopards”, as I called them “German zoo”, have not reached us, ” – said the expert.
