3:36 am
for you. thank you. god, for your important service. one in these dark days accepts ladies and gentlemen, which is based on the rules are mosque change that we should put in your mouth attack means for us. let me say it harold's a new age and what needs to be done to keep the peace will be done and germany will do its bit. let me say that clearly, but it's not enough. just to say it was because for that the german armed forces need new strong capabilities. and this is my 4th issue that i wish to speak about. now. this is lynn lucas, middle, one a domino. this is the 4th thing i wish to speak to about to day upon if you read the decrees that distort history,
3:37 am
that putin has written. if you look at his statement that he made in t, v. brooks with brooks describing his attack, and that although i had just spoken to put in for hours, any one who has read what put in says, can have no doubt that putin wants to create a russian empire. and he wants to recreate the order within europe, and he has no fear of using military might to achieve and, and we're seeing this in ukraine. today's that we have to ask ourselves what capabilities does pretends to russia have. and what capabilities do we need in order to counter this threat to day and in the future? law is one thing is mr. newton this, we need to invest considerably more in the security of our country in order to defend our liberty and our democracy in this way as well.
3:38 am
this is an a goal, so not so this is a major use a challenge for the entire country. it means to have a modern progressive german armed forces. you understand that we can protect us in the munich security conference a week ago. i said we need to for air craft. we need ships, and we'd soldiers who are well equipped, ideally equipped for their missions. that's what it's about, your voice broke, and this and lord can be done with the door for a country as big as we are as important as we are in europe. milton before but let's not kid ourselves in better equipment holstered figure, more personnel, all of this costs a lot of money and for that industry,
3:39 am
we will set up a special fund before the german armed forces and i am grateful to german finance minister lynn. now for his support to nurse the bonus opens widely once once 2022 german budgets will have 100000000000 euros earmarked for this as a one off. and this money will be used for investment in the german armed forces. the about a bond on yard from now on year for year. more than 2 percent of our g d. p will be invested in defense
3:40 am
in in london. and ladies and gentlemen, and i am addressing all parliamentary groups of the german bonus tag. let us in to prove this in our basic long minus diligence of something i would like to add at this point is that we are not just aspiring liberals of to visit your goal. because we have committed to this in our allies, to increase our defense spending up to 2 percent of idp, we are doing it for ourselves. we are doing it for our own security
3:41 am
woolley business dosage, ms. oliver told us to consummate him. well aware of the fact that it will not be enough just to have the german armed forces to stop the challenges facing us. this is why we also need to invest in development in this. and this is why we also need to strengthen our resilience. but technically, and as socially in order to be more resilient against the cyber attacks on our communications systems. and we will need to keep up technologically as well, which is why it's so important for me, for that from the fighter planes and tanks that are being developed need to be developed with our european partners, particularly with france. we need to build them here in europe. these projects are now top priority for us. is d 922. again,
3:42 am
that's bull until the new air craft get off the ground. we'll continue to develop the new york fighter together. it's also good that the euro drown, contracts were signed this week. i'm sure everybody the procurement of the, the armed drones from israel is something we're working on as well. or food a little bit of time. and for nuclear participation, we will need a modern replacement for the obsolete tornado jets. the euro fighter is going to have electronic war fair capacity. and after that, we will consider further options as a carrier, as in europe. and we will need to do more in the future in order to ensure a reliable energy supply for our country in the future. one important measure for this is something the german government has already done and we have, well, we have to re position to get rid of our dependency on individual
3:43 am
energy exporters. yeah, i visited some target woodstock. it's the events of recent days and weeks have shown us that a responsible energy policy looking to a future isn't just something that's important for our economy and fire environment . it is also decisive for our security. and this is why the faster we can expand to renewable energy, the better it is not interesting be and we have to set the right course as an industrial country until july 2030 or 45. we want to become a 0 carbon with industry for old and with list m had their important decisions that
3:44 am
we will have to take. for example, building up a coal and gas reserve. we have decided that the storage from to why maria long term options for gas have to be increased to 200 cubic gall to under 1000000 cubic meters. and we will have to buy additional natural gas reserves on the market. and we decided to, to have to ellen g, a ball reserves and to build them in as soon as we can well, this group has been, is the, the worked german and not stop by guns economics minister habit. i want to thank very much for all of his efforts that wasn't once was did not been because what was necessary in short term can be connected to what we needed long term any way to achieve a successful transformation. and ellen g terminal,
3:45 am
where natural gas comes to today can take on green hydrogen tomorrow or luckily, bye goodbye. and naturally was the high energy prices are things we need to look at . putins war has this up hiked up these prices and that's why this week we've put together a package easier to ease this burden. we has. we're getting increased aid for me. we've got a heating support for low earners and big for pensioners and we will be looking at how to ease this burden on our citizens. old little temp is gone. our message is clear on people to the citizens and the companies in country will not be left alone in this difficult time. ladies and gentlemen, because the change that putin has undertaken doesn't just affect our country. it
3:46 am
affects europe as a whole. and this also means there are opportunities and challenges the challenge is to as sustainably strengthens silver entity of the european union. the opportunity is that we can join forces in a way that we have shown we are able to do and see, for example, the package of sanctions for germany. and for all other you members dates this means not just look at us asking wilson, oh, what we can get out of brussels for our own country. but to ask, what is the best decision for the european union open in europe, and it is, or what in our old foundation, and only if we understand that we'll, we'll be able to tackle the challenges facing us. and this brings me to my final point, the 5th one pollutants war means
3:47 am
a break for our foreign policy as well as diploma as much diplomacy as possible without being naive. this aspiration remains not being naive, however, also means not speaking just for the sake of doing it for a true dialogue. there needs to be a willingness on both sides. and there is no willingness on foot and side. and it's not just been the last few weeks and days that this is been the case as well as where did you go and what does this mean for the future reynolds persuasion with also provide we will not refuse to speak to russia, not even in this extreme situation remains the job of politicians to keep diplomatic challenges at channels open. anything else would be irresponsible. wanted hamilton, ladies and gentlemen visible through here, i'm sure we know what we support in iowa, but based on our own history,
3:48 am
what we want, we want peace in europe. we will never accept violence as a means of policy making. we will always push for a peaceful solution of conflicts, discovery, and we will work until there is peace and europe once again. and others need to be michelle lloyd and we are not alone. and this is why we are working with our friends and partners in europe and across the globe, our greatest strength, our, our alliances. back with us both, we owe it to them and that for over 30 years, we have been a unified germany living in prosperity in peace with our neighbors. civil let's. if we want to store these last 30 years, not to be a historic exception, we must do everything we can to work towards cohesion within the
3:49 am
e u or the strength of nato and closer contacts, to those who shower values world wide. i am optimistic that we will succeed because rarely were we so resolute with our partners. as we are today, owns into decent arden, your business, the start, we will come to know how strong free democracy, squinty visual vision we know target what pushed on. oh, really can survive in these times disadvantage and this is why i want to thank you and all of the parliamentary groups in this parliament who have clearly condemned this russian attack on ukraine as what it is an attack on a country at war of aggression or to go to that is not justified by anything. and i
3:50 am
think i like emotion today makes that very, very clear. and i want to thank all of you who have shown clearly that they are against put in his war here in berlin and elsewhere who have demonstrated against it. and i want to thank everyone who in these times support us for a free open, just peaceful europe. we well defended living, responded belinda. grain is with me now to debrief dare i say it a very emotional speech by the german chancellor. germany's resoluteness is
3:51 am
manifest in the numbers, it bears repeating a 100000000000 euro fund to upgrade the armed forces more than 2 percent of the g d p. every year for defense u. s. administrations, as you well know, have been pushing the germans to make this move for years. was it pressure from the outside to that turned the germans around here now, and he said that very explicitly in the speech, actually it was quite interesting that he said it's not because the allies have been pressing us to do this. but because we absolutely are intent upon defending our democracy, and he essentially made it clear that germany sees the attack on ukraine as an talk on universal values on democratic values. and that this is about being a vigilant democracy. and there's actually a famous essay by one of germany's great philosophers, karl popper, that talks about the vigilant democracy and the fact that democracy only works when
3:52 am
citizens stand up for it. and he was making it very clear that that is how he sees these, as you say, a drastic departures in what we have known before germany. long ago signed up to this commitment to do 2 percent of g, d. p as a for its defense spending has never met it. you know, you, you, you made the point that the chancellor appear to have the support of most of the parties in the buddhist dog a be behind him. but what about the public? the germany change policy because they knew that to do so, they would have a public opinion beyond them. no, no, and he not only he but in fact the opposition leader for these mats and also the foreign minister all made the same point, that they are well aware that this is a wrenching moment for germans. he talked about people sitting around kitchen tables with grandparents who remember the war, world war 2 with children who say,
3:53 am
how is it possible that there's war again in europe. and it is very clear that he intends and wants to bring the citizens with him. now, on his own journey, even for her 5 days ago, we wouldn't have been able to imagine left shells making this speech. that's how fast these changes are happening. and he made it very clear that he knows people need time to grasp what all this is about in that, i think is why we heard what for him amounts to quite a bit of pathos in that speech. and by the way, the opposition later we didn't hear his speech, but at the end he essentially called for leadership from the government and said to allow schultz, this is what i call upon you to do to lead us as we move into this new era. and that obviously was schultz is aim and i think even, you know, a month, a month and
3:54 am
a half ago, many of us were, were asking where is all s sholtes in all of this, he had been saying very little as the build up began of the true russian troops on the border in the early to mid january. where is he german media asking, is he asleep at the wheel? he certainly looks like he has now taken on that leadership role. indeed, you know, you made a reference to the incredulity of this particular situation war in europe, people in their breakfast, no saying, i cannot believe this as you look at the television. this is clearly an extraordinary circumstance, and it goes a long way to explain why germany felt the need to have a policy shift here. but you've covered german politics for very long time. to what extent can this move be explained by the personalities in power today? this particular chancellor, this particular government, very interesting question. i have really been asking myself and i know i'm not alone with this. what would chancellor michael have done?
3:55 am
would she have responded in the same way? would she, on all of these different fronts, defense spending, weapons exports, harsh sanctions. would she have moved so boldly under these circumstances? i can't entirely answer that question, but my feeling is this is very much a product of this new government in place. a social democratic chancellor who is now perhaps also recalling some of the s b. d. 's, other history not on the history of us to politic of the attempt to reach out to eastern bloc countries with dialogue and diplomacy. but also the part of history that had an s b. d chancellor. how much mit stationing? pershing pershing missiles on german territory? you deter russia? and i think that is perhaps part of what we're seeing from electrolytes. but it's also very much an impulse of his coalition partners, the green party, who have made it clear, even during the election campaign,
3:56 am
we are going to push back much harder on russia, on china. we want to see human rights really count in german foreign policy. and i think they have made a and, and, and the energy policy shift very much determined by the man who is now leading the economics and energy ministry. so i think this chemistry of this coalition is part of why we're seeing this departure. certainly the german chancellor had people whispering in his ear, but he's a chance lou, who was willing to listen as what it sounds like we spoke earlier about. sholtes is a stressing that this is putin's war. it's not a war of the russian people. he vowed that germany would not reopen divisions with the russian people. but those harsh economic sanctions, particularly the, you know, banding of the swift payment system is going to hurt every day. russians, isn't that going to be some pain that the german chancellor doesn't want to inflict on ordinary people?
3:57 am
well, in fact, that's one of the reasons that germany held back on the swift issue. the foreign minister was extremely concerned apparently about what she called collateral damage . and not only here in germany, for the companies that are at the other end of transactions with russia, but also for russians. she said, you know, our payments to civil society groups in russia. those have to also go through a transfer system. these swift, the swift exclusion is going to be targeted to particular russian banks. we don't yet know which, depending which ones it is, the pain will be greater or perhaps less for russian citizens themselves. but there is no way that if the sanctions bite, that they don't feel some pain and, and undoubtedly the chancellor is aware that he referred to damage on the stock market in russia. but it will go beyond that day. so chief political correspondent, melinda crane. that's all for now. we'll be back the top of the hour with more news about ukraine. a michael ocho in berlin. thanks so much for joining us.
