For more than two years, Vladimir Putins bluster, blame and threats of escalation have been driven by a singular goal: deterring and discouraging Western support for Ukraine. Worryingly, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is giving Putin reasons to think his tactics are working.

After stalling for months, Scholz rejected Ukraines request for Germanys long-range Taurus missile system. The decision reflects Scholzs political sensitivities and an overarching German concern about escalating the conflict with Russia. Yet by sowing confusion and alienating allies, Scholzs handling of the matter is likely only to further embolden Putin and endanger Europes security.
