Germany Finally Turns on Russia as Putin Miscalculates Europe's Anger

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said his country is committing 100 billion euros to a special fund for its armed forces—the latest in a series of major shifts in German defense and security policy this weekend in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"It's clear we need to invest significantly more in the security of our country, in order to protect our freedom and our democracy," Scholz told a special session of the Bundestag in Berlin Sunday morning, according to The Associated Press.

As well as announcing the country would raise its defense spending above two percent of GDP, Scholz said Germany will build two liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals and up its natural gas reserves to cut its dependence on Russian gas after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"We will do more to ensure secure energy supply for our country," he told lawmakers. "We must change course to overcome our dependence on imports from individual energy suppliers."


Ole Vlad badly miscalculated Europe's will to stand up to a bully, his days are numbered, the only question is how many more will die before he's removed from office.

2. I suspect a Valkyrie type of removal in his near future, hopefully it works out better than

the original one, and if not the military, then it will be the Oligarchs, they don't like their money making schemes interrupted.

3. That's what I imagine...

It will have to be. They are realizing, both prospects, that they are the only ones who can stop him and that can only happen one way.
