Is Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) deliberately delaying aid to Ukraine?

Is Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) deliberately delaying aid to Ukraine?

In the face of new evidence of simply deliberate delays in the Federal Chancellery, here by Chancellor Olaf Scholz (63, SPD), one must ask quite objectively, are Jens Plötner, Andreas Michaelis, Olaf Scholz, Gerhard Schröder and Frank-Walter Steinmeier the Putin lobbyists of the SPD, in Germany?

Ukraine, under attack, has been fighting for survival for three months and truly every hour counts. But in the Federal Chancellery they are taking their time in making decisions, deliberately - in this, Scholz and Co. have apparently understood that a new Cold War has broken out between the democratically free world and Russia, and in this new Cold War, in view of the behaviour of the SPD and the Left, there is no place for these parties, their comrades and their attitudes, which is why Scholz and Co. are visibly deliberately denying Ukraine help for rapid deliveries of weapons, tough sanctions and a general economic embargo against Russia.


The background is that Economics Minister Robert Habeck (52, Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen) and Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (41, Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen), both members of the Federal Security Council, agreed internally weeks ago that Ukraine should also receive Marder infantry fighting vehicles.
But since then, this decision has been stubbornly blocked in the Chancellor's Office. Shortly after Chancellor Olaf Scholz's so-called "turnaround speech" at the end of February 2022, the arms manufacturer Rheinmetall offered to supply Ukraine with a total of 100 Marder infantry fighting vehicles, including the corresponding ammunition.

So, unlike the promised Gepard tanks, there is no dependence on Switzerland as production sites abroad. About a fortnight ago, Federal Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht (56, SPD) announced in a media-friendly way that the Federal Republic of Germany wanted to supply Gepard tanks to Ukraine - but the ammunition is still missing because Switzerland is blocking the export of ammunition to the war zone.

Political observers see the so-called Gepard tank deal as a deliberate deception, as there is no reasonable ammunition equipment. It does not help Ukraine in the war, but is apparently meant to keep the peace in the SPD.

In a recent survey by BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG, respondents hope "that the government coalition will burst before the next Bundestag election and that there will be new elections quickly, so that people can get rid of Olaf Scholz as Chancellor outright by not voting for him anymore - because neither the Left nor the SPD, as parties in the current times, would serve the good of Germany and fit into the new political landscape of a Cold War!"

Our demand to Olaf Scholz, deliver immediately all the weapons Ukraine needs against the criminal aggressor Russia and finally stop the oil and gas payments and do not continue to finance Russia's criminal war against Ukraine - because Russian oil and gas smells of Ukrainian children's blood!  (O.Bulka--BDTZ)
