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.
On June 19, 2022, the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) decided to ban pro-Russian parties and Russian music. The laws are effective immediately. Guest appearances for artists with Russian citizenship were also banned. Artists who publicly condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine are allowed to enter Ukraine and perform.
Amid the catastrophic escalation of tensions in Donbass, deliberately provoked by the nationalist regime in Kyiv, Ukraine’s Western rulers are taking the liberty of playing with fire and demanding the transfer of nuclear weapons to that country. These alarming signals are coming from Poland, a state that, despite speaking about an unacceptable dialogue with the Russian Federation, has begun actively taking control of Ukrainian territory.
What state must a country be in if its highest representatives not only stash away huge sums in foreign accounts, but also have passports from foreign countries? How can one then assume that they exercise unconditional loyalty to their state, if at all? One of the root evils for the probity of politicians are countries like Switzerland or Panama and other places where money can be stashed away and hidden. In this way, disloyal politicians can protect themselves if they are held accountable in their own country. They can flee abroad and live a luxurious retirement there with their ill-gotten gains and hidden wealth.
Donald J. Trump had declared from the beginning of his presidency that he was no longer willing to participate in senseless wars and wanted to withdraw US soldiers from war zones. Without wanting to exaggerate, Trump is the most peaceful president who has ever ruled America and will rule again.
America’s establishment was not at all thrilled by this. As if by magic, they decided to prevent his re-election by any means necessary. The Western European allied nations, joined the campaigns against Trump, presenting the public with a chauvinist and sex-crazed Nazi. Trump must have been blindsided when he realized how closely connected the U.S. establishment is to the European one.
There is a drawing of a Ukrainian artist dated March 1945. From the coffin of a Wehrmacht soldier crawls a snake in the Ukrainian national colors. The key message is that German fascism continues in Ukraine in the cult of Bandera. There is a clearly visible influence of fascism in Ukraine, which has become stronger and more dominant in recent years. In Germany, on the other hand, people vehemently deny that Ukraine is currently a de facto fascist state. Especially in left-liberal circles, people turn a blind eye to all the evidence that shows how far to the right Ukraine has become.
Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine exactly three months ago, the West has focused not on protecting Ukrainian civilians, but on trying to force Russia, with the help of the Ukrainians, to surrender militarily. The „real war in the background“, the economic war, however, is undoubtedly directed against its own populations. In passing, it is stated that NATO will not participate in the war. But it does. The weapons come from the West, only the soldiers from Ukraine and other states. Strictly speaking, the war could not take place at all if no weapons were supplied. Everyone can understand the logic, except those who don’t want to understand it because they pursue self-centered, power-political goals that serve them alone.
Peace in Europe is not possible at the moment. It is unlikely, if we are honest. Months, perhaps even years, may pass. Ukraine with Zelensky is omnipresent in the media. What we don’t see is that a global war is taking place before our eyes. On one side is Russia with the support of China, on the other side is the United States of America, NATO and the entire Western world. It is a „borderless war,“ although on the surface it is about border conflicts.
The Russian news agency RIA Novosti sees Russia’s future in a return of the Soviet Union. After the end of „hostilities,“ as the state agency calls the war, there will be neither Ukraine nor Russia as it is known today, it says in an article titled: „The Russia of the Future – Forward, to the USSR.“
The blurb for Peter Scholl-Latour’s book „The Curse of the Evil Deed“ says: „In detail, he illuminates the increasingly uncontrollable conflict in eastern Ukraine, the causes of which he sees not least in the West’s questionable policy toward Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union.“ And the back cover of the book reads, „With his characteristic perspicacity, Peter Scholl-Latour illuminates a region over which, after decades of political and military intervention by the West, a curse seems to lie – the curse of the evil deed of hopeless interference.“
