German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock, in a column for the 100 days of Russia's full-scale invasion, called for providing weapons to Ukraine to stop Putin and destroy the threat of new Russian aggression.
Berbock's column was published in Bild.
The German foreign minister noted that after 100 days of war, Russian President Vladimir Putin has changed his strategy, "but hell continues."
"That is why he now shoots from a safe distance. Village by village, city by city. First it rains bombs and artillery, then tanks roll on scorched earth. Putin counts on persistence and our exhaustion. And every village awaits the fate of Bucha," said Berbok.
The minister noted that the attack on Ukraine is also directed against the European world order, "life in freedom" in Vilnius, Krakow and Potsdam, so Europeans speak with one voice against Russia's brutal war of invasion.
Separately, she insisted on arms deliveries to Ukraine.
"That's why we must continue to support Ukraine right now. Even with weapons, because Putin cannot be stopped by words," the German foreign minister said.
German Foreign Minister supported granting Ukraine candidate status for EU accession
Berbock stressed that Germany is obliged to act as the largest country in the EU, "even if it is difficult."
"As long as Ukraine is not safe, neither is Europe. If Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, there is always the threat of new aggression. We will continue to support Ukraine. Until there is not a single Bucha left. So that what we take for granted will become normal again for people in Ukraine: a life of freedom," the German Foreign Minister said.
Earlier, Berbock made it clear that she would like Ukraine to win the war that Russia is waging against it.
Earlier on Wednesday, Chancellor Olaf Scholz promised to supply Ukraine with a modern IRIS-T SLM air defense system and advanced radar that detects enemy howitzers, mortars and rocket artillery.
