German Chancellor Olaf Scholz promised in February to overhaul his country in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Six months later turning point– Turning point – things are going better than many expected, albeit worse than some had hoped.

On February 27, three days after Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine began, Mr. Scholz announced three changes in his startling speech to lawmakers. First, Berlin would invest in its military to meet the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s goal of spending 2% of gross domestic product on defense, using it specifically to upgrade equipment such as fighter jets. Second, Germany would treat energy policy as a matter of national security and wean itself off Russian natural gas. Third, Berlin would no longer engage in mindless diplomacy for diplomacy’s sake, especially with the autocrats of the world.
