Days after Russia warned of nuclear war, Germany’s foreign affairs minister declared that her country was also at war against Russia, alongside Ukraine.  

Germany’s defense minister declares war after Russia warns of ‘global catastrophe’

Germany’s Foreign Affairs Minister Annalena Baerbock made the statement while attending a diplomatic forum in Portugal. 

“Yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine,” she said.  “Yes, we have to also do more on tanks.”

“But the most important and the crucial part is that we do it together,” Baerbock said. 

“And we do not do the blame game in Europe because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other,” she added. 

Germany’s statement comes just days after speaker of Russia Parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin, warned of a “global catastophe” should escalation from foreign countries continue. 

“If Washington and NATO countries supply weapons that will be used to strike civilian cities and attempt to seize our territories, as they threaten, this will lead to retaliatory measures using more powerful weapons,” Volodin said

The German minster’s comments reflect “the quiet part out loud,” according to Newsweek. 

Canadian politicians haven’t gone this far – at least verbally. Last week, Defense Minister Anita Anand said Canada will provide funds to Ukraine for “as long as it takes.” 

“Over the past 12 months, Canada has spent over $5 billion in aid for Ukraine — including arms and military equipment, ammunition and artillery shells, vehicles and training, as well as humanitarian and economic assistance,” Anand said

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine occurred just weeks after Ukraine joined NATO. Last fall, Finland and Sweden applied to join NATO, which the US State Department said earlier this week should be approved.
