Sanctions against Russia and the arms supplies to Kiev will not solve the current crisis, while Ukraine’s guaranteed neutrality would be a reasonable solution, argued Sahra Wagenknecht, a member of the Bundestag for The Left, in her latest interview with Die Welt. Could Berlin become a responsible peace broker?”The German government under Chancellor Scholz is more subservient to Washington than the Merkel government,” says Gilbert Doctorow, an international relations and Russian affairs analyst. “As a US vassal, Germany is dancing to the melody coming from Washington which is to extend the Ukraine-Russia war as long as possible in order to inflict maximum economic and political damage on Russia in the hope of precipitating regime change. The interests and welfare of the Ukrainian people count for nothing. For Germany, as for the United States, all the sympathy to the suffering refugees from Ukraine is all Public Relations. The reality is that for Scholz the Ukrainians are just cannon fodder.”Sahra Wagenknecht, a member of the Bundestag for The Left, told Die Welt on Monday that Russia has long warned the West against providing Ukraine with offensive weapons and integrating the country into NATO. “After all, 2,000 US soldiers were already in Ukraine, and NATO maneuvers were taking place on its territory,” the leftist politician stressed.She noted that the weapons delivered by NATO member states to the Ukrainian leadership “are prolonging the war, but they will not result in Ukraine winning it.” The promise of NATO membership did not help Ukraine either, Wagenknecht remarked.Nevertheless, it’s highly unlikely that the German Left could stop Berlin’s armament of Ukraine, says Dr. Christian Blex, an AfD lawmaker, state parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia. Wagenknecht’s party, Die Linke, largely supports the federal government which has recently resorted to Cold War rhetoric, according to the politician.”My party, the Alternative for Germany, is the only exception here,” Blex notes. “The AfD parliamentary group of the Bundestag passed a position paper this week in which we clearly speak out against arms deliveries in war zones.”
