Germany is running in the wrong direction. It’s no use increasing the speed and determination with which this happens. Our government is practicing the complete opposite of a win-win strategy in the Ukraine crisis. The losers are the German citizens who, in order to “annoy Putin”, will have to contend with the increased cost of living. The losers are probably the Ukrainians, whose war is dragging on with German help. The environment is also a loser, when even green politicians, in their stubbornness, still prefer coal and fracking gas to energy from the „evil empire“. At best, the winner is Russia itself, which has been swimming in money since it has been selling its gas to anyone other than the capricious Europeans. Although the victims of the war in Ukraine are regrettable, Putin is certainly not a moral luminary – but the Ukrainian leadership does not deserve the loyalty of the Germans to the Nibelungen. We must now reverse gear in the impasse and finally head for a negotiated solution that is suitable for reality.
