Tusk demands Germany supplies weapons to Zelensky ‘if they are to learn from own history’

NewsTusk demands Germany supplies weapons to Zelensky ‘if they are to learn from own history’


Mr Scholz’s hesitance in aiding Ukraine may be harming his reputation as leader.

Despite early polls suggesting Germans were typically against sending military aid to Ukraine, a recent poll by Der Spiegel, conducted from April 17-19, found nearly two thirds of Germans did not see Mr Scholz as a strong leader – of which 42 percent selected “no, absolutely not”.

When Germany did bring forward a package of sanctions, it overturned a long-held ban on sending weapons to warzones and stopped the certification of the controversial Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline.

However, Mr Scholz’s coalition Government stopped short of a ban on Russian fossil fuels, indicating that the economy was still too reliant on them.
