The leaders of the two German parties opposed sanctions against Russia

17
Alexander Gauland, co-chairman of the right-to-populist Alternatives for Germany (AdG) and Wolfgang Kubikki, deputy chairman of the Free Democratic Party of Germany, spoke out against anti-Russian sanctions, reports TASS.




Politicians presented their point of view in a joint interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Kubikki said that he was aware of at least three companies that “went bankrupt because of the sanctions, because they relied on business in Russia”. According to him, no restrictive measures can stop a country like the Russian Federation.

What we need now is again in the channels for dialogue,
he noted.

Both politicians are convinced that the problem around Crimea, “should be frozen, that is, first put aside and talk (with the Russian Federation) about joint interests.” At the same time, the reunification of the Crimea with the Russian Federation is, in Kubikki's opinion, “a violation of international law”.

In turn, Gauland said that AdG "from the very beginning opposed these sanctions."

Whether what happened in the Crimea was a violation of international law or not, there are a lot of controversies about this. We consider this to be due to an erroneous policy that was conducted after 1989
he noticed.

Gauland pointed out that the West did not attract Russia to "build a new world order, but considered it as an adversary."

This led to the fact that Russia returned to what it always did - began to pursue a policy peculiar to a world power,
he rocks.

According to him, “it is in the interests of Germany to have a partnership with the Russian Federation, and AdG stands for it.”

Recall that the EU imposed sanctions against the Russian Federation in 2014 year in connection with the events in Ukraine and the reunification of the Crimea with Russia.

    You Germans are a strange nation. Sometimes you say the right things but always do yourself harm (as regards your attitude to Russia). And you seem to have decent weight, but you’re still ready to look into your striped uncle’s mouth ..

        According to the election results:
        - 12,6% of the vote and the right is "Alternative for Germany."
        - 5% liberal Free Democratic Party

        In principle, not so little, unless of course we take into account the populism inherent in politicians, they say one thing, but as it comes to business, memory fails.

          We and our "strange" have enough that the striped uncle is not just in the mouth, they drop in all places with bated breath

          The difference is that ours can speak without embarrassment of the “Putin regime”, but the Germans and other Europeans, all the same must bow down:

          At the same time, the reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation is, according to Kubikka, "a violation of international law."


          What do you take from them, the totalitarian regime, dare not dare to oppose

          What these politicians have expressed is probably, by their standards, the height of courage and courage

      Otherwise, HOW?
      The country is under occupation, something is not so and it will become apparent.
      Most of the ZVZ in the United States, again, is just a little bit wrong ....

        Moreover, 8,5 kilotons of German gold (as it were) are in Fort Knox, to which the American inspectors do not admit German inspectors. Question: and what is wrong with the gold stored in the USA?

      First, pay reparation for the Crimea, for the destruction during the years of occupation, for the terror of civilians.

      Interestingly, since when has AdG become populist? Like other parties are not populists even once?

    That's due to the fact that Europe is tired of sanctions, in the near future there will be another round of conflict in Donetsk. The Americans need to force the "partners" to extend the old sanctions and adopt new ones in any way.

    Firstly, the Germans owe us in life (for indulgence after the Second World War and for agreeing to unite Germany), and, in any case, the opinion of the defeated does not have any weight for the winners. Some losers of mongrel will have their own opinion, which is of no interest to anyone. Without snotty buggers, we’ll figure it out.

    Tired of not being calmed in Europe, tired of listening to our politicians and those in power, this lowing is taken for something more meaningful !!!
    Eats sanctions and period. They are all ENEMIES of Russia and the point. Briefly and clearly, and from this you can really WORK, build, as they say, "partnership" relations !!!
