Pabriks criticized Germany for modest assistance to Ukraine and gave the Germans advice


Latvian Defense Minister Pabriks criticized Germany for “inappropriate” aid to Ukraine and advised the Germans to allocate more money for these purposes – increasing the amount of aid by 10 times.

Latvian Defense Minister Artis Pabriks has criticized Germany, saying that its military assistance to Ukraine is inappropriate.

“I can upset [канцлера ФРГ Олафа] Scholz or someone in Germany. But from the Latvian point of view … and this public position is shared by the Baltic countries, Poland and Ukraine, I would like a country like Germany to provide proportionally equal support to Ukraine, as we do,” he said, adding that assistance Ukrainian troops from Germany should be increased 10 times, up to 15 billion euros.

“The (Russian) information war and propaganda has had a significant impact. Many in the West really believe that any support for Ukraine could lead to further escalation and upset Putin, the Kremlin, Russia. It was a big mistake, because the only thing that provokes Russia is weakness,” Pabriks said in an interview with The Times.

I don’t see any reason why Ukraine shouldn’t get Western armored vehicles. Why not? Just because Russia might get upset?” he added.

The head of the Latvian Ministry of Defense also compared Russia’s war against Ukraine with World War II, in which Moscow acts like the Nazis.

“If we want to end the war, if we want to provide grain to the third world, if we just want to live our normal lives, the only way forward is for Ukraine to win. No alternatives, no compromises, no peace talks, where we give something to Moscow, as we did Chamberlain”. It won’t be a solution. It will simply be preparation for the next war on NATO soil,” Pabriks said.

At the end of August, Scholz said that in the coming weeks and months, Germany would supply Ukraine with a batch of modern weapons, which would include air defense (air defense), radars and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). He also announced that a conference on assistance to Ukraine would be held in Berlin on October 25.
