Otherwise you cannot defend yourself effectively. It cannot be fielded.”

The letter has now been signed by nearly half a million people, Schwarzer said. “I see the letter as an important initiative because it closes the really dramatic gap between the opinion published in the German media and the opinion of the people reflected in the polls.”

Since the publication of the letter, the situation has escalated. “The risk of nuclear war is now even more acute, and Germany is particularly at risk as a buffer zone between Russia and the Western nuclear powers.
