Military Review

Berlin recalled its position on the Ukrainian crisis

38
The position of Chancellor Angela Merkel and the entire German government regarding the conflict in the east of Ukraine is unchanged, the decision can only be political, reports RIA News statement of the representative of the Cabinet of Ministers of Germany Steffen Seibert.




Earlier, the White House approved a plan to provide Ukraine with a lethal weapons, including Javelin anti-tank missiles. According to State Department spokesman Heather Nauert, weapons will be supplied "to ensure the protection of the territorial integrity and sovereignty" of the republic. It is expected that the first batch of weapons will go to Ukraine this year.

I can repeat that we have repeatedly talked about the supply of arms to Ukraine. Our position, which is shared by the Chancellor and the entire government, is that this conflict in the east of Ukraine cannot be resolved militarily. It requires a peaceful, diplomatic, political decision, worked out through negotiations ... in the framework of the Minsk agreements,
Seibert said at the briefing.

According to him, “the goal remains de-escalation and a truce - a real truce that must be respected.”

The representative of the Cabinet called the “small positive step forward” the exchange of prisoners in Ukraine last December, but pointed out that “there is still much to be done.”

Cooperation of the Ukrainian government with the United States in the field of armaments is not newsas an American country reports, including us. This is part of the existing collaboration,
The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany Rainer Broglie, who was present at the briefing, added.

He also noted that the conflict in the Donbass "cannot be resolved with the help of violence and weapons", but must be overcome "only through cooperation and negotiations, and this remains unchanged."

        Thomas Opperman, Social Democrat and Vice President of the Bundestag, proposed limiting the number of terms that one person can serve as German Federal Chancellor. Two terms, he believes, are enough for any chancellor. "The Chancellor is the hardest job in Germany," Opperman said. today in a comment for the Welt newspaper. Anyone can get tired of her, he added. After ten or more years in office, it is unlikely that any person, even Angela Merkel, will be able to “find new impulses or react to them, as required democracy".War is not a woman’s business and Merkel, the daughter of a pastor, is no longer suitable. hi

      Russia has no choice but to supply arms to the republics in order to keep the junta on the brakes. And do not care what they say these Western two-faced anus. And this old hag still has to answer the German people for hundreds of raped women.

      hi
      Everything is very simple, if we put aside the verbal husk - "... the decision may be political, but if the United States decides to fight until the last Ukrainian with the aim of involving Russia in this military conflict, then we are in solidarity with our overseas" partner boss "." Here is such a configuration looms (the main thing is to crow, but at least do not dawn there).

    Until the United States gives the go-ahead to Europe, and those to Ukraine. Until Moscow gives the go-ahead for us, everything will last for years. Every spring new offensives of the Armed Forces will be promised, and every autumn they will be canceled. Every winter we will hope that Ukraine will not survive the cold.

        We also need to start crushing Trump. Stop waiting, you need to frown at it along with their congress. Let them butt in their place, for us they all the same will write out full sanctions.

          So Trump is crushed by those whom they call the world hegemon, and it is clear why they are crushed.
          Judging by the information that sometimes breaks into the press, inside the “hegemon” itself, there is no comic struggle.

    I don’t know how Washington is, but the Kremlin will not give the go-ahead of DLNR-NEVER.
    What is the point of stopping the militia attack by the Minsk Agreements 2 times, if then the offensive is allowed? Bullshit, for the Kremlin DLNR was and will be the territory of Ukraine.

      hi No, Germany and France have lost overlord status for Kiev. Now their boss and idol is the United States, which ambiguously positions itself as the main "locksmith" in the "Norman company." Well, the former Western “guarantors” are for the background and nothing more. So, IMHO, we should expect the intensification of hostilities, and not the "Minsk" slack. yes

    That is, the Germans confirmed that they did not crave a local armed conflict at their side.
    How so, one asks? For what reason dare to argue?
    I have such a scent that after this statement there will be some small terrorist attack, or something like that.
    Striped dogs so simply will not leave this statement.
