Germany questioned the need to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine

32
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel stated that he doubted that the lethal supply weapons Ukraine will be able to help resolve the conflict in the east of the country. This is reported by UNIAN.


We in Germany are quite skeptical that the supply of arms can help resolve the conflict, but we are still quite far away, we are distant from this conflict
- he said.

Germany questioned the need to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine


Gabriel noted that Germany “is in a certain security,” and Ukraine, “from the point of view of defense,” considers the issue of supplying her with lethal weapons differently.

Earlier on Wednesday, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin said that the weapons that the United States would provide to Ukraine would be used exclusively in the “case of provocations by illegal armed groups” in the east of the country.

This weapon can and will be used in the case of provocations by Russia and its supported terrorists.
- said Klimkin. At the same time, he assured that the weapon will not be used in attacking actions.

Washington announced the intention to start delivering lethal weapons to Kiev in mid-December. In particular, the United States will provide the Ukrainian military with modern Javelin anti-tank missile systems. Canada also added Ukraine to the list of countries to which it will sell lethal weapons. The Russian Foreign Ministry is convinced that Canada and the United States by their actions are fueling a conflict in the Donbas.

      You don’t even like the German Foreign Minister, but the dude speaks from a Russian position, because the dude broadcasts that Germany is “in a certain security” and “we are separated from this conflict!” The usual position of a hatscreen is not just in Ukraine . Following Mr. Gabriel’s logic, let everything grow there, but it doesn’t concern us, the conflict is far from us, Ukraine is covering us. This is not the thinking of the EU leader, this is thinking of the Selyuk!

        We just gave guarantees not to overthrow Yanukovych, and then intervened in the internal affairs of the outskirts and participated in a coup d'etat, and now we are crushing Russia with sanctions.

        Well, since Ukraine is covering you, then you are not in real security ...

        And where did you see about the Russian position?
        Not with them, doesn’t mean with us!

        Well, at least you like a man, I’m happy for you ...

        They will never have Russian positions. Do not flatter yourself, they have always been and remain enemies, which is constantly confirmed in their own words and actions.

          They will always be not your enemies, but your "partners" who will kick you, despise, spread rot with sanctions, discriminate in all areas of life, even in sports, and you will always be "sorry" and hope that someday you they will understand, lift the sanctions and begin to respect. Do not hope, respect the strong and courageous, but you are no longer like that!

      This is not pragmatism - it is a shame. So it can be expressed as an ordinary redneck somewhere in the rural outback of any country, and not the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the leading EU country.

          Europe must defend itself, and this goon tries to sit behind the Ukrainian guys. Nothing but squeamishness causes such behavior. I’m sure that you yourself, Russians, wouldn’t want to have such “allies”, and even now you can pee “And where are our allies in Syria? And they are guided by the well-known principle that the German Foreign Minister laid out - my hut from the edge.”

            Europe must protect itself

            Can I find out from whom? Who was, and is, in your opinion, the enemy of Europe? Russia? laughing The main enemy of Europe (the Western world) has always been Europe itself, which constantly throws off its problems to its neighbors in the form of wars and revolutions, and then searches for the extremes in its own contradictions. I dare to recall that Europe has united more than once, and always only for a war with Russia. The truth is quickly forgotten what it ended for them.

      That is why the States and the leader of the Western world, and Germany has reached the level of village villages thanks to the statements of this “minister.” With respect, no one in the world, after the words of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany, will treat Germany either on your part or the Ukrainian one. that the comments of members of the forum that the Germans today have a castrated nation correspond to the truth.

      Well, why immediately scary. There are Germans very much nothing, though in small quantities, not like ours. Mammoth test, but I still think that this is a "lethal weapon"? But it turns out what kind of Avon. laughing

    Afraid, Herr Sigmar, that a new round of war will return as a boomerang to the Vaterland. All in all, in February 2014, it was necessary to insist on the guarantees of power signed by Yanukovych until September 1.
    Even the highly degraded "elite of the Russian Federation" is unlikely to openly drain the Donbass. So it will be - "peace enforcement." And Germany will have to break export and import contracts with the Russian Federation, get involved in the construction of military infrastructure near the borders of the Russian Federation, and accept refugees wounded from Eastern Europe. ...
    ps the upcoming war in Ukraine is unlikely to improve the finances of the EU.

    ------------------------------------------
    It seems that it will merge with time. In general, this is no longer our elite. I must admit this openly to myself. Sobchak turns out to have married Vitorgan’s Israeli citizenship, one senator graduated from a military college in the USA, our “laid-back” athletes go to Pyeongchang, despite the sanctions. Is it worthy of a great country?

    Germany recalled that it had already delivered weapons to Russia's enemies twice. To the Civil - to Skoropatsky and Krasnov, to the Patriotic - to the OUN-UPA, to the Vlasovites and other evil spirits ... They remembered, scratched turnips and decided for the third time not to try.

    The Germans are asleep and see a quicker settlement of this conflict. And then buy cheap Russian gas through SP2 and sell your technologies and equipment to Russia, as before.
