Angela Merkel refuses to mediate talks between Moscow and Kyiv

34

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in an interview with German journalist Alexander Osang that she did not intend to mediate in negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow to resolve the conflict in Ukraine. According to Merkel, her longstanding trusting relationship with President Vladimir Putin is unlikely to help influence the Russian leader. In her opinion, such negotiations "will not bring any benefit."


True, Merkel uttered a phrase that indirectly leaves the possibility of her participation in the negotiation process.

In my mind, I should not do things that the German government does not ask me to do.

- the ex-Chancellor of Germany transparently hinted at the conditions of her possible mediation.

Merkel explained why in April 2008, when it was announced at the NATO summit in Bucharest that Georgia and Ukraine were eligible to join the alliance, she opposed such a decision. According to her, at that time Ukraine was a very unstable state, in which there were constant squabbles between the oligarchic clans in spheres of influence on the country's politics and economy.

In addition, the chancellor feared that Kyiv's accelerated entry into NATO could provoke Russian President Putin into retaliatory actions that could cause "enormous damage to Ukraine."

I was absolutely sure that Putin would not allow this just like that. For him, from his point of view, it was a declaration of war

- the ex-chancellor explained her then position.

After leaving the post of German Chancellor, Angela Merkel tried to keep a low profile and did not speak publicly about the current crisis events taking place in Europe and the world. As an experienced politician, she most likely understands that the stakes are now so high that even her authority is unlikely to help resolve the differences between the West and Russia. However, judging by the interview, Mrs. Merkel still managed to, as they say, “put pressure on her”. Calling the special operation in Ukraine “a major turning point in stories Europe,” she was forced to add that she condemns Russia’s actions and follows what is happening “with the greatest concern and sympathy.”

      Not smart. If she were offered to be an intermediary between Moscow and the Somali pirates, along with the pirates of the Caribbean. she would probably have agreed, but to be an intermediary between anyone and Ukraine, which is an indicative madhouse for the incurable, you know, it’s such a pleasure.

        Kukuevskim is impudently ruled with the permission of minke whales ... no sane politician, especially a former one, wants to climb into such a cesspool.

      If from 2014 until leaving her post she was unable, or rather did not want to, force Ukraine to comply with the Minsk agreements, she has no faith.
      Let him rest in retirement and "worry" about Zelensky, the APU and the national battalions at a distance.

        Did they need it? They believed that they would fool their gesheft out of this situation!
        This is only we can show, we decided to show them the cat/Earth muzzle, specifically and forever, otherwise they could succeed.

        They could have succeeded, that's why they did this ... it didn’t grow together, they ran into ... NWO!
        Now they are jumping like a louse in a frying pan.

      All Western politicians begin to see the light and adequacy after they retire from political affairs. laughing

        Not everyone, of course, but Merkelkel, against the background of many others, was an expression of adequacy, t.s.
        she is not a friend to us, rather an enemy, but she had the limits of propriety and rationality and she did not cross them, if possible, of course.
        This is what the Germans themselves can reproach her for, this is the choice of a successor ... Lashet was miserable, in all respects!

          By the end of his reign, Merkel's politics had already become miserable, so the successor continued what he started.

      This speaks of something else ... they begin to dig under Scholz. He did too much in his career for the Russian side to sit down with him at the same negotiating table...
      And Merkel is well done ... she left on time and does not shine.

      Something like this. If it took Merkel 7 years before the first call to "Merkel leave", then Scholz coped with this task in six months. At such a pace, he will drive the Germans into melancholy and poverty in a couple of years, and the citizens of the former GDR will restore the wall at their own expense.

    "Just as there is no use for rings in the ears for a wild donkey, so there is no use for a woman with an important posture if she is crafty in her words, devoid of wisdom, talkative and long-winded."

    This is what distinguishes Angela Merkel from other representatives of the fair sex, sitting in high positions in Europe and the United States.

    observes what is happening "with the greatest concern and sympathy."
    And when in 2014, as chancellor, she directly participated in the coup d'état, there was no concern. On the contrary, having deceived Yanukovych and supported the crowd organized by the Nazis, they wondered which of the proteges of Germany would take which post. "Tribune" Klitschko - practically the flesh of Merkel's flesh.

    Merkel has already acted as Yanukovych's guarantor at the last Maidan and Merkel signed the Minsk agreements. We all remember how it all ended. So let Grandma Merkel sit in retirement and not grunt.

    Merkel fulfilled her main role - she transferred power to American representatives. What do they want from her? She doesn’t want to rake this manure after the Americans, because she will remain the last in this story

    Frau Merkel is "out of her hands" to mediate in cases in which she, personally, "had a hand". Therefore, now it is more profitable for her to sit quietly, like a "mouse under a broom" and wait for the end of the "filming of the Ukrainian action movie", the script of which she wrote in collaboration with Miss Macron ... Not even an hour can the Democrats from the Bundestag deprive the chancellor's pension and privileges .. ..

    And you don’t have to shag your grandmother! Frau does not know which god she is praying to, that she managed to pull off in time before the Kukuev events. She is a wise woman and perfectly understands that there is no Ukraine in the future!
