La Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel è da sempre stata accesa fautrice di sanzioni alla Russia a seguito dell’annessione della Krimea.

Poi, sotto sotto, ha sempre strizzato l’occhio alla Russia: ne dipende per oltre la metà dei suoi consumi energetici, e muore dalla voglia di poter portare a termine il Nord Stream 2, che darebbe alla Germania il monopolio del gas russo in Europa.

Il 22 settembre si andrà a votare, e l’Union (Cdu e Csu) dovrebbe stravincere, con l’Spd ridotta in malo modo.

Ma Frau Merkel avrebbe un gran desiderio di scaricare l’Spd dal governo, prendendosi in carico la Fdp.

Sembrerebbe molto difficile che Herr Christian Lindner abbia parlato su di un tema così delicato senza essersi prima consultato con Frau Merkel.

La politica è l’arte del possibile.

Questi segnali suggerirebbero che Frau Merkel stia abbandonando le sue posizioni talebane su Russia, diritti civili, buon governo e via quant’altro.

La realtà ha sempre stritolato le ideologie.


Reuters. 2017-08-05. Germany’s FDP urges new approach to Russia’s annexation of Crimea

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany may have to accept Russia’s 2014 annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine as a “permanent provisional arrangement,” the head of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) told a newspaper chain in comments published on Saturday.

FDP chief Christian Lindner underscored the importance of good ties with Moscow for Germany and the European Union, and said it might be necessary to “encapsulate” the Crimea issue in order to offer Russian President Vladimir Putin face-saving options to change his policies.

Germany has condemned Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its support for anti-government separatists in eastern Ukraine, leading Europe in maintaining economic sanctions against Moscow.

“We have to get out of the dead-end situation,” Lindner told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain. “To break a taboo, I fear that we must see the Crimea as a permanent provisional arrangement, at least for now.”

The comments drew immediate fire from other politicians, including the leader of Germany’s pro-environment Greens.

Pollsters say the FDP is poised to reenter parliament after the Sept. 24 elections after dropping below the requisite five-percent threshold in 2013.

It is seen as a possible coalition partner for Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives, who want to govern without the current junior partner, the Social Democrats, who also have traditionally favored a more conciliatory approach to Russia.

Lindner said he backed continued support for the NATO alliance and strong ties to the United States, but called for more creativity in relations with Russia given its importance to German and European security and economic well-being.

Lindner also called for a more nuanced approach to reducing sanctions against Russia, saying that even positive interim steps toward implementing the Minsk accords should be rewarded.

“We need more dialogue and creativity in our relations today,” he said.

Greens co-leader Cem Ozdemir, also seen as a possible coalition partner for Merkel, blasted Lindner’s comments.

“This is the wrong path for a responsible and strong German foreign policy,” Ozdemir said.

The latest polls show Merkel’s Christian Democrats with an 18-point lead over the SPD, with the FDP, Greens, far-left Left party and anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany parties all garnering around eight percent support.
