Berlin: Moscow's policy forces to increase the military budget

27
For the first time in many years, the German military budget will be increased. In Berlin, this step is justified by the “aggressive policy” of Moscow, which threatens the whole of Europe, reports Look with reference to Deutsche Welle.




“In preparing to discuss the military budget for the next four years, the Bundestag already assumes that the amount of spending for the next year will eventually be higher than stated, because today's Moscow policy towards Ukraine is increasingly perceived in Germany as a military threat to the whole of Europe,” reports DW.

According to the TV company, we are still talking about “allocating 34,4 billion euros in 2016 year (1,9 billion more than in 2015 year), in 2017 year - 34,9 billion euros, in 2018 year - 35 billion euros and in 2019 year - 35,2 billion euros, but in the defense committee of the Bundestag believe that at least in 2016, military spending will end up above specified. "

The newspaper reminds that in recent years, in Germany, the cost of maintaining the army has been systematically reduced, the strength of which has been reduced from 500 thousand to 185 thousand people. The country abolished military service.

According to the Ministry of Defense Commissioner Hans-Peter Bartels, this policy “led to the formation of a kind of“ dummy ”in the army - structures that exist only on paper, and military equipment and other equipment for peacekeeping operations are literally collected around the world.” .

According to Bartels, the military budget of Germany should be "not 34, but in 58 with more than billion euro." But such an increase in spending is currently unrealistic. Nevertheless, Germany is capable of raising expenditures on 0,1 percent of GDP, and this is already 2,9 billion of additional funds.

    The button accordion was already in 1933-1945. But they never learned the story.

        "at that time," Germany was only "rising from its knees"!
        having lost colonies and laden with reparations and indemnities.
        and NOW - in the FIVE of the world economic powers ...

        Nothing has changed, I assure you. If you think that the artist-loser himself came to power without foreign "investments", then I will disappoint you. He was put like dozens of others, set against the USSR and holding on a short leash. Comrade Rockefeller with his "standard oil" did not even hide the investment in pumping Nazi Germany.

      there was nothing to climb into Ukraine, but how about those grandmothers on the Maidan - and now they are starting to whine that sales have fallen and the Bundeswehr should fork out and Moscow is aggressive. You still remember about Hitler

    It is not Moscow’s policy that forces Germany and other Western countries to increase the military budget, but the vassal dependence of their leadership on the states. Soon they will not be able to fart without the permission of the "tanned"!

      That's right. If, after the collapse of the USSR, Russia as an heir renounced the right to control territories in Germany, the United States does not refuse these rights received in 1945 and dictates its own rules of life to Europe. If Germany, as a losing country, does not have the right to express its will, this is understandable. It is not clear why the rest of Europe bends so much. Expect that, in which case, the Americans will protect them?

    At one time (during the Cold War), NATO was able (with Gorbachev’s help) to make the USSR a “poor” country and destroy it. Reap the fruits, those that you sow. Putin turned out to be much smarter than you thought !!! Spend, waste your euro-dollar-candy wrappers!

    No need to blame others if the face itself is a curve. The Americans said to raise the budget, raise it in silence (hello to taxpayers) and don’t run into us.

    Come on, come on. Increase. The bigger, the better. I recommend that the largest increase in the military budget be made under the article "Democratic Air Support in the BV." More democracy - more refugees. Another 6-12 months of such support and your military (and all the rest) budget you ... will not be needed. Run to Russia from your "guests" vindictive and bloodthirsty.
    You have to think about the house, about the house, but you didn’t make a bogeyman from Russia. And then all "Russia occupied Ukraine ...", "Soon it will capture the Baltic ...".
    We would have to densely populate our territory with the indigenous population.

    Yes, Russia should not be afraid. And IS, and a lot of migrant workers who do not want and will not integrate into the so-called "European values" and plow their whole lives until retirement ... That's where the threat of Germany is. And what a threat from Russia, what is this threat !? Who is Russia touching? They only envy Russia!

      I’ll add a little. They need to be afraid, first of all, of their puppeteers from across the ocean. There will be no financial and moral support. IS will break up into separate groups. Refugees will go home.
      When the doll begins to walk and move its horn on its own, sanctions, anti-sanctions will disappear, and GDP growth will begin (these are not initials). And all of them will be happy.

    What will African refugees feed now?
    It is necessary to increase the staff of the police and its rearmament. Send cops to arabic courses.

    Yes ... In a divided GDR there was no invasion and domination of Turks, Arabs and other refugees, as is now in a united Germany. And if the GDR existed today, then they would still be there (in the GDR) - THERE WAS NOT !!! The Germans were the main titular people in the GDR, and the Turks with Jews in the “united Germany”.
