Earlier, the Bild newspaper wrote on its website that German Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht had decided to resign.
According to sources in the publication, the initiative for this step by the German minister came from herself, and not from the office of the German chancellor. It is not reported from what date the German Defense Minister wants to leave his post.
It is also unknown who will succeed Lambrecht, whose candidacy, according to the publication, is now being discussed.
On January 9, the same publication, citing the public opinion research institute Insa, reported that two-thirds of Germans want the resignation of Christina Lambrecht, since the minister has recently been repeatedly criticized not only by the Germans, but also by coalition partners. In particular, the minister was reprimanded for her proposal to supply Kyiv with helmets for self-defense. He caused a scandal and a photo of her son in a Bundeswehr helicopter.
