German diplomacy will support Ukraine ‘no matter’ what voters think

Annalena Baerbock, the German Foreign Minister, does not hide it: the German people have no say in Berlin’s policy on the Ukrainian conflict – and in particular the sanctions against Moscow – even if they directly suffer the consequences.

No matter what my German constituents think, I want to keep my word with the Ukrainian people

The member of the German government made this somewhat iconoclastic confession on the occasion of Forum 2000 in Prague on August 31: “If I promise the Ukrainian people ‘we are with you as long as you need us’, then I want to keep your word. No matter what my German constituents think, I want to keep my word with the Ukrainian people […]. This means that all the measures I take hold as long as Ukraine needs me.”

According to the one who is also Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, it is therefore essential to continue the policy of European sanctions targeting Moscow for as long as necessary, and this whatever the price to be paid for German citizens. “We are now facing winter, where we will be challenged as Democratic politicians, people will take to the streets and say ‘we can’t pay our energy bills,'” she said. anticipated. “But I don’t want to say ‘okay, then we stop sanctions against Russia.’ We will stand with Ukraine, which means that the sanctions will remain, also during the winter. Even if it becomes very difficult for politicians,” concluded the head of German diplomacy.

Statements that left Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dumbfounded: “Yes, our citizens are suffering, but they will have to suffer, because we will support Ukraine against all odds. This is a fantastic confession! A simply fantastic confession!”
