NATO jets patrolling the skies over the Baltic countries with full ammunition loads is shear madness, Sahra Wagenknecht, a lawmaker of the Left faction in the German Parliament, said.
"This is a very dangerous military game creating the threat of war for the entire Europe," the politician was quoted as saying by Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.
According to her, those who sent German combat jets to Eastern Europe are "out of their mind."
The lawmaker also called for the German government to "immediately stop this madness."
According to the military, the move was intended to train German pilots.
Recently, Berlin adopted a new military doctrine considering Russia as an enemy, the article added. It read that the US, in turn, is planning to deploy their nuclear missiles to Germany.
