Statement Vizeadmiral Kay-Achim Schönbach:

“I have just asked the Federal Minister of Defense to release me from my duties and duties as Inspector of the Navy with immediate effect.

The thoughtless comments I made in India on security and military policy are increasingly weighing on my office. In order to prevent further damage from the German Navy, the Bundeswehr, but above all from the Federal Republic of Germany, I consider this step to be necessary.

The Federal Minister accepted my request.

The commander of the fleet and deputy inspector of the navy, Rear Admiral Kaack, will lead the German navy until a successor decision is made.
