“The embarrassing arrogance attack on Schulz” – this is how German daily Bild described Chancellor Olaf Schulz’s behavior at Tuesday’s press conference. After the G7 summit at Elmau Castle. His reaction to a question by Polish-German journalist Rosalia Romanek, Deutsche Welle, also caused a storm of comments on Twitter.
At the conference, Romanek asked Schultz if he could “specify” which one is he security guarantee The G7 could give Ukraine after the war. The counselor answered. “Yes I can.” Then he smiled and said succinctly, “That’s it.”
Romanek then commented on Schulz’s reaction on Twitter: “It’s really a pity, Mr. Chancellor. When I was learning German, I was advised to use the polite manner at press conferences.” “And the question was very serious,” she added.
While many journalists appeared to have enjoyed Schulze’s “joke” during the press conference, many expressed outrage and solidarity with the DW journalist on social media.
RDN reporter Marcus Decker commented on Twitter: “Having arrogantly a journalist who asks a perfectly legitimate question in a polite tone – it’s not appropriate. Neither man nor counselor.” In turn, the journalist of Polish descent, Tomas Dudek, stated that Schultz showed disrespect towards all journalists with his behavior.
Claudia von Salzen of Berlin’s Der Tagesspiegel ruled that Schulz’s reaction “was not just about the arrogance of the authorities”. It also appears that he does not have an answer to the question of what security guarantees are Germany can and wants to give it to Ukraine– I wrote on Twitter.
At a press conference in Berlin on Wednesday, the German deputy government official, Christian Hoffmann, declined to comment on the allegations of the chancellor’s arrogant reaction. She only noted that Shultz spoke about security guarantees for Ukraine, stressing that “it cannot be determined yet that it is possible to talk meaningfully today on this subject.” The spokeswoman added that the main goal is to preserve the sustainability of Ukraine’s unity and sovereignty. When asked if the chancellor had apologized to the journalist for his reaction, Hoffman replied: “The chancellor does not think an apology would be necessary.”
