Germany has reached an agreement to supply Ukraine with seven 2,000 self-propelled armored howitzers, German Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht said during a visit to Chirac in Slovakia on Friday. During a visit to Slovakia.

Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht said the seven self-propelled howitzers were the same as five other howitzers of the same model and that the Netherlands would supply Ukraine with these howitzers. The German army was armed with about 100 2000 howitzers, but only 40 were ready for battle.

In a significant change, Germany said it would start shipping arms and other supplies directly to Ukraine in February. Germany has come under repeated criticism, especially from its partners in Kyiv, for not doing enough to support Ukraine against a Russian invasion.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz has faced growing criticism that Germany did not do enough to help Ukraine during its invasion of Russia. Delivery times were not specified. Ukrainian soldiers are expected to start training in Germany from next week, using a Germany that has been targeted for the delay in arming Ukraine compared to other Western allies.

Germany is going to finally send needed heavy weapons to the Ukrainians. These self-propelled howitzers are supposed to be one of Germany’s go-to heavy weapons for its army. I’m certain President Zelenskyy appreciates everything the US and its allies are doing for them but is that going to be enough?

The question still remains, what will the US and its NATO allies do if the war takes a turn to the bad side (God forbid) for the Ukrainians and they begin to lose the war? The US and its allies have been supplying Ukraine with weapons to fight off the invasion of Russia (Vladimir Putin), so to me, that is just about the same as being in the war.

Putin’s threats to use nuclear weapons are real. They defiantly should not be taken lightly. He is getting pushed further and further into his little corner and there really isn’t any way to be sure he wouldn’t do that. The only thing his threat really has done is pull NATO closer together. I’m sure the US and its NATO allies have done everything they can to prepare for the worse if it comes to that.

God Bless The United States, God Bless the Veterans
