The resignation of Christine Lambrecht as defence minister was expected by most of the public and foreign experts. The new minister, Boris Pistorius, has more experience than his predecessor in the security sphere, although not directly in military issues. The main internal challenge the new minister will have to face is how to accelerate the rearmament of the Bundeswehr. Although Pistorius advocates support for Ukraine to help it regain its occupied territories, Chancellor Scholz's cautious stance is not expected to change.
