New Defense Minister: Boris Pistorius is considered the red sheriff of the SPD - soon the man from Lower Saxony will command 180,000 soldiers

Anyone dealing with Boris Pistorius should know one thing first: The name is of Latin origin and means baker, miller. It's not all that rare, occurs a few thousand times in Germany, most in Saarland, most of all in the little town of Püttlingen, the hometown of Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the ex-defense minister. So maybe it wasn't the chancellor who chose him, but fate?

Pistorius has even held a gun in his hand and shot with it. Well, it was only a blank pistol and the shot only went into the air, but that is probably more experienced weapons knowledge than his predecessor Christine Lambrecht had to show when she took office.
