Germany Sent 8 Billion Euros of Military Aid to Ukraine

On March 29, 2023, the German parliament’s budget committee gave the green light to roughly eight billion Euros ($8.7 billion) to purchase weapons and equipment for Ukraine between 2024 and 2032.

The news is a “very important step with which we make it clear that we are supporting Ukraine in the long term in its fight against (Russian President Vladimir) Putin,” declared German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius.  

Germany will provide Ukraine with armored vehicles, tanks, and ammunition. Germany is the largest supplier of weapons to Ukraine  in the EU.

Since Russia launched its “special military operation” in Ukraine in late February 24,  NATO member nations  have been profusely supplying Ukraine with weapons and ammunition at an alarming rate. Russian authorities have been continuously warning NATO about escalating tensions with Russia by maintaining the supply of weapons to Ukraine.

Germany should rethink its commitment in continuing the supply of military aid to Ukraine. It stands to benefit by employing a multi-vector foreign policy where it remains geopolitically neutral while maintaining amicable economic relations with both the Collective West and Russia. Rational countries would be exercising all their options in this new multipolar order. 

Latching oneself to the rotting corpse that is the Collective West is not a viable option these days.
