The last week of the Bundestag session this year starts with a government statement by Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD). He wants to comment on the meeting with the EU heads of government in Brussels. In addition, the parliamentarians deal with the overthrow plans of the Reich citizens.
According to Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD), Russian President Vladimir Putin missed all of his goals in the war in Ukraine. “Not a single one of Putin’s plans worked out,” said Scholz in a government statement in the Bundestag on Wednesday. Putin had “fundamentally miscalculated”. He believed his troops would overrun Ukraine within days. He assumed that Europe and the democratic West were too divided to effectively help Ukraine. “He thought he could dry up Europe’s solidarity by turning off the gas.”
With a government statement by Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD), the Bundestag starts the last week of the year on Wednesday (9:00 a.m.). Before his trip to Brussels, the Chancellor wants to comment on the meeting of the European heads of state and government there and on the joint summit of the EU and the Southeast Asian ASEAN countries.
In addition, in a current hour, the parliamentarians deal with the question of what consequences are to be drawn from the coup plans of the so-called Reichsbürger scene. In the previous week, 25 suspected “Reich citizens” had been arrested. They are accused of wanting to overthrow the political system in Germany. On Wednesday morning (11 a.m.), Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) will also speak to the Interior Committee.
