The Saxon police leadership has to answer questions in the state parliament on Thursday because of the highly controversial ‘silk thinking’ demonstration in Leipzig.

The 65th anniversary of the founding of the Bundeswehr is honored with a solemn promise from young soldiers in Berlin. Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier will hold the address on the grounds of Bellevue Palace. Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) will also give a speech. To meet Corona requirements, only nine Army, Navy, and Air Force recruits would have to march to make their pledge.
