BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The Russian ambassador in Berlin, Sergej Netschajew, has sharply criticized demands from Germany for arms deliveries to Ukraine. “From our point of view, the military development of Ukraine is absolutely harmful and out of place. All steps in this direction would be counterproductive,” he told the German press agency.
Shortly before Christmas, in view of the Russian troop deployment on the border with Ukraine, the designated CDU chairman Friedrich Merz pleaded for considering the delivery of weapons for self-defense to the government in Kiev. Before the general election, Green leader Robert Habeck had already advocated armaments aid for Ukraine. Nechayev said: “These considerations are still proof that Russia needs security guarantees, and we are demanding these security guarantees in a form that is anchored in international law.”
Among other things, Russia is calling for an end to NATO’s eastward expansion, which would mean renouncing Ukraine’s admission to the alliance. Since Russia captured the Ukrainian Crimea in 2014, Ukraine has repeatedly unsuccessfully asked Germany for the delivery of weapons and other armaments. Even with the new federal government, she should hardly have a chance. Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens) told the dpa on the issue of arms deliveries: “A further military escalation would not bring further security to Ukraine.” / Mfi / bk / DP / stk
