Quick Glance: Germany's Top Military Official: Equality and Funding Prioritization
  • The Chief Inspector of the Bundeswehr, Carsten Breuer, warns of a possible Russian attack on NATO in the next eight years and advocates for an increase in the defense budget and the reinstatement of conscription, including for women.

  • There is consensus between Breuer and Defense Minister Boris Pistorius on the continuous growth of the defense budget to make the Bundeswehr combat-ready and maintain operational readiness, including equipment, operating expenses, and training.

  • Breuer emphasizes the need for a long-term increase in the defense budget until the 2030s to provide a reliable planning basis for the defense industry and ensure security.

  • Support for Ukraine by Germany and NATO remains strong, and Breuer warns of a potential erosion of this support due to the rise of political forces friendly to Russia, emphasizing the necessity of continually explaining and defending this support.
