For a long time, Germany refused to send any weapons to Ukraine at all. It failed because of the political will. But also because their own Bundeswehr has already been saved. It is now becoming clear how bad the German military capability is.
Berlin promised 700 rockets of the “Strela” type to Kyiv. The Bundeswehr has not used the GDR system itself since 2014 in ongoing operations. The first “Strela” rockets were then blocked “for security reasons”, reports the “Spiegel”. Since then, the wooden boxes with the rockets that were to be sent to the Ukrainians have become so moldy that soldiers are only allowed to enter the camps with protective clothing.
