Scholz refuses to send warplanes to Ukraine: It is not Germany's war
After Germany's approval for the delivery of battle tanks, the request for fighter jets comes from Ukraine. The German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has rejected this request.
Everything must be done to prevent a war between Russia and NATO, the German chancellor said, stressing that although Germany widely supplies Ukraine with weapons, it does not participate in the Ukrainian war.
"This is a war between Russia and Ukraine," Scholz said during a visit to South America at a press conference in Buenos Aires. "This does not change in any way the aid we give to Ukraine in the form of financial, humanitarian, or arms supply." Germany will do everything to prevent the situation from escalating into a war between Russia and NATO.
Chancellor Scholz called for prudence in the arms supply debate. He warned that this could lead to a bidding war when it comes to weapons systems.
"As soon as a decision was made in Germany, the next debate begins, this does not seem serious and shakes the confidence of citizens in state decisions."
Scholz said that he will try to influence Putin even further.
