Like hegemon USA and other Western regimes, Germany is a fantasy democracy — especially at a time of resurgent Nazism in charge of running things.
The Scholtz regime’s lunatic foreign minister, Baerbock, virtually confirmed it, saying the following:
“I’ve said already in the last days – yes, we have to do more to defend (the scourge of Nazism in) Ukraine.”
“We have to do more also on tanks.”
“But the most important and the crucial part is that we do it together, and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.”
Baerboch was silent about what’s too obvious to ignore.
To operate US, German and other foreign-supplied tanks, Ukrainian troops require months of training, perhaps a year or more.
So US M1 Abrams tanks will be operated by Pentagon personal.
And Germans will operate Leopard 2 tanks supplied to Ukrainian Nazis.
For the first time since WW II ended, German troops will be directly involved in waging war on Russia — risking potentially devastating consequences.
Yet according to the Scholtz regime’s spokesman, Hebestreit:
“It was announced during a Wednesday cabinet meeting that Germany would further increase its military support for Ukraine.”
Berlin “decided to provide the Ukrainian armed forces with Leopard 2 main battle tanks.”
“The goal is to quickly raise two tank battalions with Leopard 2 tanks for Ukraine.”
“At the first stage, Germany will provide a company of 14 Leopard 2 A6 tanks from the stocks of the Bundeswehr.”
The Scholz regime will also supply ammunition, maintenance, logistical help and manpower to operate the tanks for war-making on Russia.
In response, Russia’s embassy in Berlin issued the following statement:
“This extremely dangerous decision shifts the Ukrainian conflict to a new level of standoff.”
“Berlin’s choice to supply tanks to Kiev means the final rejection of Germany’s historical responsibility to the Russian people.”
The decision is a virtual declaration of war by the Scholz regime against Russia.
Weapons of all shapes and kinds supplied to Ukrainian Nazis by the US and European regimes are “legitimate targets” for Russia’s military, Sergey Lavrov stressed.
On Wednesday, Vladimir Putin stressed what he said before and repeated:
The SMO’s goal “is primarily to protect the people and Russia itself from threats being posed to it on our historical lands bordering our territory.”
“We cannot allow this to happen.”
Addressing the Bundestag on Wednesday, Scholtz defied reality by falsely claiming that Germany is not at war on Russia.
Sending 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Kiev upped the stakes more than already by pushing things closer to WW III with nukes.
At the same time, no matter what weapons and munitions US/Western regimes send to Ukrainian Nazis, they’ll be targeted and destroyed by Russian firepower.
Separately in response to the reality of Germany war on Russia, Moscow’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said the following:
“If we add this to Merkel’s revelations that they were strengthening Ukraine and did not count on the Minsk agreements, then we are talking about a war against Russia that was planned in advance.”
“Don’t say later that we didn’t warn you.”
And this reality check on Monday from Russia’s Security Council Deputy Chairman, Dmitry Medvedev, saying:
“Our party should help people around the world understand that the ongoing special operation was a forced and last-resort response to preparations for aggression by the US and its satellites,” adding:
“It is obvious that the world came close to the threat of WWIII because of what (is) happening.”
Supplying Ukrainian Nazis with foreign tanks heightened the risk more than earlier.
