Why Germany has a moral dilemma over Ukraine – expert explains

We all know that the War in Ukraine has up-ended peace in Europe and shaken geopolitics on the continent.

Nowhere more so that in Germany – where the Chancellor spoke of a turning point – with the country pledging to ditch its ties to Moscow and arm Ukraine.

But months later, that turning point appears to have been more words than action – with European allies frustrated with Germany’s apparent inability to fully commit to the Ukrainian cause.

Today, our Europe Editor Matt Frei looks at the reasons why Germany’s past means it is more hesitant to fully commit to a European conflict – and whether that will finally change as this war drags on.
