German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht submitted her resignation from the government, after a series of lapses and mistakes in the field of public relations.

The resignation comes as Berlin faces mounting pressure to allow German-made battle tanks to be sent to Ukraine.

Lambrecht was ridiculed when she announced that Germany had supported Ukraine by sending 5,000 military helmets.

It has also been widely criticized for failing to improve Germany’s ill-equipped armed forces, despite the €100 billion earmarked for the task, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
