The measure includes an increase in defense investment of over two percent of Germany’s annual Gross Domestic Product.

According to Scholz, Germany needs state-of-the-art armed forces for its protection, due to the war actions in Ukraine.

On the other hand, with this decision Germany breaks with one of its basic principles, that of not providing weapons to countries at war, by announcing that it will send 500 Stinger missiles and 1,000 anti-tank grenade launchers to Ukraine.

Moscow launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, after the authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics requested assistance to repel Kiev’s aggression.

Previously, the Russian government recognized the independence and sovereignty of both territories and signed treaties of friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance with their leaders.

Relations between the parties included the establishment of diplomatic ties and military assistance.
