There are absolutely drastic words that the SPD boss tried. Lars Klingbeil assures Ukraine of support after the partial Russian mobilization, but at the same time warns of a dramatic escalation. "We will continue to consistently support Ukraine," said Klingbeil to the editorial network Germany. At the same time, however, it is about "preventing a third world war." Regarding the debate about the delivery of further heavy weapons, he said that Germany would not press ahead here. "We will continue to coordinate daily with our partners what the next steps are to help Ukraine."
