DrDefense Committee chairwoman Marie-Agnes Struck Zimmermann strongly criticized Union faction leader Friedrich Merz (CDU) for his appearance in the Bundestag on Thursday. Stylistically, Merz’s appearance was “rude” and “unprofessional”, and “uninformed” in terms of content. For example, the claim that there are practically no deliveries of heavy weapons to Ukraine is false.

“I’m surprised that Frederick Merz said that,” Strach-Zimmermann said on WELT TV. Frederick Mers should have met with his defensive politicians before his speech. Then he knows that everything works. We are training Ukrainian soldiers and these heavy weapons are being prepared. By this, Strack-Zimmermann indicates upcoming arms deliveries.

She accused him of not being adequately prepared for the speech. “Frederick Merz was simply not aware of the matter. I recommend to the leader of a parliamentary group that he ask his professional politicians before he says something like that.”

Strack-Zimmermann sees parallels between Merz’s biography and his allegations. On that occasion – also because I found it inappropriate and also unprofessional and also rude – I couldn’t help but call: ‘You want what happened to you as group leader at that time’ from Mrs. Lambrecht. He was fired by Angela Merkel, who apparently did not get rid of from it to this day.”
