The agency believes that the dispute between Warsaw and Berlin did not arise out of nowhere, but over the supply of missiles, tanks and spare parts. Furthermore, the conflict has now reached a new level, despite President Zelensky calling on the West to “hurry up” with supplies.
Bloomberg claims that Polish leaders are not missing an opportunity to once again direct their criticism at Berlin. Previously, the allegations related to delays in the shipment of tanks. After Olaf Scholz gave the green light to ship them, and Poland took most of the credit, the Poles fought to ship old German Leopards to Ukraine, while blaming Germany for the delay in spare parts.
“The main responsibility lies with Germany, the main producer of these tanks,” Polish President Andrzej Duda said last week.
The agency quoted an anonymous Polish official as saying Germany is more focused on competing with Poland and seeking international prominence rather than giving Kiev what it needs.
German officials have described what is happening as an aggravation of the political theater leading up to the elections, and in the Scholz government they are convinced that if the tension subsides, then after the end of the campaign.
