“It’s a scary thing we can’t ignore. We can’t turn off the television.” With this expression, the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholzo, has confirmed two realities: first, that Germany (like the rest of the European Union and NATO) views the war in Ukraine from afar; And second, it does not mean that it is indifferent and is ready to take unimaginable economic measures to stop Russia.

In a long-awaited speech on the last day of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, the German Chancellor announced that “Putin will not win this war” And he was “convinced” of that. And he has listed that, to this end, he is ready to reactivate “coal” as an energy source, despite the fact that it has historically been rejected by one of its major coalition partners: the Greens. Is. The Social Democrats noted that there would be a “decision on coal in the autumn” in a sign of their willingness to reactivate the plants to compensate for the loss of Russian gas hitherto essential to Germany’s energy consumption. He also emphasized that the involuntary recourse to liquefied natural gas “and other substitutes” for a purpose that “should have no doubt about”: “Germany and the European Union will end their dependence on energy from Russia”, It has also reaffirmed its commitment to increase defense spending by $100 billion. “Allies can count on Germany.”

What they have left is whether they support the desperate request of the Ukrainian President from the past, Volodymyr Zelensky, in front of the same Davos auditorium, that he should be given more heavy weapons. Scholz insisted: “We are not doing anything that would lead NATO to war. Because This would mean a direct confrontation between nuclear powers,

However, it presents Putin as an increasingly vulnerable leader: “He has already lost his strategic goals.” And he admits that “the invasion of the whole of Ukraine today seems more remote than the beginning of the invasion.” He valued the “impressive” Ukrainian defence, betting that “Putin can be understood that he will not be able to make peace. Ukraine will not accept it, and neither will we.” He sees only one way to keep his pulse:”I am clear that Putin will seriously negotiate for peace only if he knows that he cannot break Ukraine’s resistance,

In economic matters, he has defended globalization, although he has to correct inequalities, as he warns, but sees no alternative. Responding to increasingly protectionist and self-sustaining temptations in the world, the leader of the world’s third-largest export power said “disruptiveness will not work.” They have also pointed out that any return to coal or liquefied natural gas has only a temporary purpose, as it reaffirms their commitment to “electrification” and “acceleration of renewable energy”.
