“In many capitals the question has to be asked: are we actually doing enough?” said Scholz.

“The answer in most cases can only be no.”

The chancellor also noted that Germany, as Ukraine's largest military backer in Europe, cannot single-handedly compensate for the halt in U.S. security assistance to Kyiv.

Berlin announced a new military aid package for Ukraine on Jan. 31, which includes armored personnel carriers, all-terrain vehicles, and anti-aircraft munitions.
