storm of criticism
The last German chancellor was subjected to a storm of criticism from his party colleagues and allies, and from political opponents.
Among those hard hit was opposition leader Friedrich Merz of the German Christian Democrats.
Last week, he shot his prime minister, saying he was procrastinating on the decision to send heavy weapons to Ukraine unnecessarily, and said Schultz was a coward.
On Sunday, it became clear that Merz decided to travel to Kyiv in protest of the inaction of his prime minister, who has not yet visited Ukraine, he wrote. Watchman.
Germany has already sent large quantities of anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles, ammunition, grenades and mines to Ukraine.
However, it became clear on Thursday of last week that the prime minister bowed to pressure, agreeing to allow Ukraine to buy German weapons. The decision was supported by a wide majority in the German Bundestag.
