Although many European countries such as the Netherlands and Denmark have pledged full support for Ukraine with pledges of cybersecurity or military assistance, Germany’s approach has been described at best as cautious.
So far, Berlin has ruled out supplying Ukraine with defensive weapons and has restricted their help to a shipment of 5,000 helmets.
That assistance has inspired memes on social media, and the mayor of Kyiv panned it as “an absolute joke.”
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany has rebuked Berlin for playing “pure appeasement politics.”
