From Monday, the country’s Defense Minister Boris Pistorius will receive a report on options for the possible continuation of conscription.

Germany is bringing back compulsory military service, reports The Sunday Times.

According to the publication, next week the country’s defense minister Boris Pistorius will receive a report on options for the possible continuation of compulsory military service as part of wider measures aimed at making it “ready for war ” the country.

“However, in Berlin, which is almost 300 miles from the nearest Russian border, there is none of the sense of imminent threat that prevails in the Scandinavian and Baltic countries. A recent poll… found that 52 percent of voters favored returning of some form of conscription, and 43 percent oppose it,” the article said.

The authors note that the idea is most popular among people over 60, including many older men with memories of their Cold War military days. However, among those under 30, 59 percent oppose the concept in general.

“Olaf Scholz, Chancellor of the SPD, is another former conscientious objector. In 1984, as a young radical leftist and skeptic, he decided to do his national service in a nursing home rather than the armed forces. Also said he said returning the prize was “not a good idea,” the publication added.

Let’s remember that Macron has previously approved the sending of French troops to Ukraine. In addition, he advised Putin not to throw threats of nuclear weapons.
