German Die Grünen revert to type and attack Russia over Ukraine.
Takes Sides Against Putin and ‘Fascist’ allies.
After a certain prevarication the German Greens, (die Grünen), have now reverted to type as one of Europe’s fiercest supporters of NATO and intervention in support of the ‘West’.
This follows many debates which have pitted the Greens against the German left over the Ukraine.
The former announced back in February that they could not remain neutral on the conflict that began in the Maidan (“deutschland kann in diesem Konflikt keine neutrale Position einnehmen.) The latter, from the left bloc, Die Linke, pointed to far-right involvement in the Ukrainian protests.
Now the Greens claim that there is only one major right menace, from Russia and its backers.
Werner Schulz (who comes from a DDR opposition background) and is a Green European Parliament member, has just announced (Deutschlandfunk) that, for him, Putin is himself the main cause of the growing conflict ( der Verursacher der Eskalation).
There was clear evidence that paramilitary units intervened in eastern Ukraine and wanted to destabilise the situation said Schulz on German radio (.The units would wear the same uniforms as the Crimea and were armed with Kalashnikov rifles, which used only Russian Special Forces. In Ukraine, one can not readily buy these.
Schulz described Russian “aggressive nationalism” and claimed that the “entire vocabulary” of ” Stalinisism” had returned.
Putin intends not only to create a Eurasian Union, for which he needs the Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan, but he also wishes to weaken the West, the EU. When we look at this we can see the right-wing, populist right-wing forces in Europe, for example, with which the Kremlin has entered into an alliance.
He ‘asks’ and gives for proof of this alliance the following,
Who were the election observers of this alleged referendum in the Crimea? A ragbag group of right-wing populists, neo-Nazis and representatives from the Left Party in Germany.
So the German Die Like is an ‘objective’, or insinuated, ally of neo-Nazis.
Very moderate talk….
