War in Ukraine. “Welt am Sonntag”: Germany will no longer send weapons to Ukraine
The authors of the text refer to sources of the Ukrainian government. A spokesman for the German defense ministry admitted that due to shortages in the Bundeswehr’s equipment, the federal government will no longer send weapons to Ukraine. Welt am Sonntag reminds us that many of the Striela anti-aircraft missiles promised to Ukraine are useless. Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht did not confirm this information, although she admitted that fewer weapons were shipped than expected.
However, German military experts indicate that the Striela missiles, dating back to GDR times, were rendered inoperable as early as 2012. According to the “Bild” newspaper, their dispatch to Ukraine is another proof of Berlin’s “compromising” behavior in the against the authorities in Kiev, fighting with the Russian aggressor.

Ukrainian ambassador to Germany: it is a pity that Scholz did not go to Kiev
Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany, Andrij Melnyk, expressed his regret that Chancellor Olaf Scholz had not decided to travel to Kiev. In an interview with the Rheinische Post, the ambassador said he wanted the same signal from the German chancellor that he gave to the prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic on their journey to the Ukrainian capital. On Tuesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczyński and Prime Ministers of the Czech Republic and Slovenia, Petr Fiala and Janez Jansza, expressed their solidarity with Ukraine and its President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kiev.
– It is a pity that Chancellor Olaf Scholz did not go to Kiev and said: “I am from Kiev”. It would be an exceptionally strong signal to the world, Ambassador Melnyk said, referring to the words of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1963: “Ich bin ein Berliner” – “I am a Berliner”. During the first visit of the President of the United States to Germany since the construction of the Berlin Wall, Kennedy expressed his solidarity with the people of West Berlin.
