” VSher Chancellor Scholz, tear down this wall, give Germany the leadership role it deserves. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke directly to Olaf Scholz on Thursday March 17, during his new intervention by videoconference in the lower house of the German Parliament. He urged him to “destroy this wall”, drawing a parallel with the old Berlin Wall.
Zelensky thus drew a parallel with a historic speech by US President Ronald Reagan, who had launched in 1987 from the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to the leader of the Soviet era Mikhail Gorbachev: “Tear down this wall” ). Two years later the Berlin Wall fell. Like the day before before the American Congress, the Ukrainian president received a standing ovation from the Bundestag, before his ten-minute speech.
Volodymyr Zelensky deplored the erection of a new “wall” in Europe since the Russian invasion. “It is not a Berlin wall but a wall in Central Europe between freedom and servitude, and this wall is growing with each bomb” launched on a Ukrainian city, underlined the Ukrainian president. “Each year, politicians repeat never again. And now we see that those words are just not worth anything. A people is being destroyed in Europe”, warned Volodymyr Zelensky, according to which 108 children have been killed in Ukraine since the start of the offensive. “Help us stop this war. The Ukrainian president regretted in his speech the close economic relations forged in recent years between Berlin and Moscow, in particular in the energy field.
Reviews against Nord Stream 2
“Dear German people, how is it possible that when we told you that Nord Stream 2 [un projet de gazoduc entre la Russie et l’Allemagne] was a kind of preparation for war, we got the answer: it is purely economic. Is it the economy? he launched. These projects led by Germany and Russia, “it was the cement for the new wall”. “For some it’s politics, but it’s also stones, it’s stones for the new wall,” he blasted.
Ukraine has been opposed from the start to the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline linking Russia and Germany, which was finally suspended when Vladimir Putin recognized the autonomy of the pro-Russian Ukrainian provinces. The Ukrainian regime has also been urging Germany for many weeks to deliver weapons, which Berlin finally conceded after the Russian invasion launched just three weeks ago. But the government of Olaf Scholz continues to oppose a boycott of the import of Russian gas and oil, which kyiv would like. At the same time, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister asked that Turkey be “one of the guarantors” of a possible agreement with Russia. “Ukraine has made an offer on the collective security agreement: P5 (the five permanent members of the Security Council), plus Turkey and Germany,” said his counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu, assuring that “the Russian Federation does not had no objection to it”.
