Deliveries of weapons – Kurschus fears escalation – politics
The chairwoman of the council of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), Annette Kurschus, fears an escalation of the war in view of the planned delivery of Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine. “We have always emphasized that the defense must be the goal weapons shipments offensive weapons call that into question,” Kurschus told the Evangelical Press Service. You’re becoming “increasingly scary.” In principle, however, the top representative of German Protestants backed the country’s support by supplying weapons. “The Protestant Church supports everything that serves peace and protects life. We are on the side of those who were attacked,” she said, also referring to the reception of refugees.
