In Europe, they advocated the creation of a separate air defense system from NATO

German Chancellor Scholz proposed to create a single European air defense system A single European air defense system (air defense), created separately from NATO as part of increasing the strategic autonomy of the EU, could improve the security of all European countries.

This proposal was made by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz during a speech at Charles University in Prague, TASS reports.

“The [unified] system created by joint efforts would be a gain in terms of security for the whole of Europe,” the politician suggested. According to him, this measure would be a more effective solution than the creation of separate air defense systems in each EU country.

The Chancellor also announced an increase in spending on strengthening the German air defense system with the possibility of integrating similar systems of EU member states, such as Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, the Baltic States and Scandinavia.

Earlier, Scholz said that Germany would not supply Ukraine with weapons for strikes on Russian territory. He explained this by the fact that such a position is connected with the unwillingness to allow the escalation of the conflict. “I think everyone else should adhere to this principle,” the politician noted.
