About 50% of Germans Consider Cabinet Decision to Give Kiev Marder Vehicles Wrong: Survey

Samizdat – 08.01.2023

BERLIN – Almost half of Germans consider the cabinet’s decision to give Kiev Marder infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) wrong, a survey conducted by the Institute for New Social Answers (INSA) for the Bild tabloid found on Sunday.

On Thursday, US President Joe Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in a joint statement that the United States and Germany intended to supply Ukraine with infantry fighting vehicles and train Ukrainian troops to use them. On Friday, German cabinet spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said Germany was planning to supply about 40 Marder IFVs in the first quarter of 2023.

According to the survey, which 1,001 people took part in, 49% of respondents perceive Berlin’s decision to supply Marder IFVs to Ukraine as a mistake, while 40% support this initiative.

Also, 38% of Germans believe that Germany should intensify its military aid and give Ukraine Leopard battle tanks, while, 50% are against this measure.

Western countries have been ramping up their military support for Kiev since the beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.

In April, Moscow sent a note to NATO member states condemning their military assistance to Kiev. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned that any arms shipments on Ukrainian territory would be “legitimate targets” for Russian armed forces. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov, in turn, stated that arms provision was undermining prospects for a future peace process.

  1. One has to ask, what’s in it for Germany after the war is brought to a close? Ukraine has not and never will fill Russia’s shoes when it comes to trading with Germany’s Middle Stand. Germany lost 65 billion dollars of trade with its former trading partner Russia. On top of that, Germany has lost its main source of natural gas with no alternative in sight. And Biden’s anti-fossil fuel green agenda holds out nothing positive for Germany’s manufacturers and homeowners. Windmills and solar panels represent the “Trojan Horse” that advocates of depopulation have tricked Western governments into accepting. Once the oil and gas industry is shut down in the West, these same genocidal maniacs will abandon these unreliable alternatives for local community “small is beautiful” sources. We’re not just talking about fossil fuel energy but water systems, and transportation systems. You need electricity to deliver city water to millions of people but it will not exist. The Electricity Recharging stations won’t exist either after Biden shuts down coal-fired power plants. Idling electric buses and cars.

    The British have already advanced the 15-minute city plan. The 15 Minute City is a UN and WEF plan because they want you to drive less. In the WEF’s own words — this rearrangement of cities is absolutely about climate change. It’s a permanent climate lockdown. The 15-minute city is not just Oxford, but turning up in Brisbane, Melbourne, Barcelona, Paris, Portland and Buenos Aires. It’s everywhere.

    This is what the future holds for all of us unless we don’t fight back now.
