The Ukrainian crisis, a shock for Germany’s military ambitions

It is a revolution for a country with a pacifist tradition: the German Parliament voted last June to allocate a budget of 100 billion euros to modernize an army whose state of equipment is considered obsolete. A special fund which should not only bring the Bundeswehr up to date, but also make it the largest conventional army in Europe… An objective which still seemed unthinkable before the war in Ukraine, but to which the population adheres: approximately two thirds of the Germans say they are in favor of modernizing their army. Report by Anne Mailliet, Willy Mahler and Kilian-Davy Baujard.
