Putin declares four areas of Ukraine as Russian

– President Putin has announced the illegal seizure of four areas of Ukraine – saying they are now Russian territory
– In an angry speech decrying the West, he claimed people living in the regions had made their choice – but „referendums“ held there have been labelled shams

Bernie doesn’t even pretend any more to have anything resembling a left-wing foreign policy or any minimal divergence from the neocon-driven Dem Party’s foreign policy dogma. Opposing NATO expansion was long a mainstream liberal view. Now only Hawley & Paul will get near it:

Bernie Turns Pro-War & Votes To Expand NATO

The United States Senate has voted 95-1-1 to approve the entry of Sweden and Finland into NATO, further engorging the ever-growing “defensive” alliance – this despite the fact that NATO was formed as a pact among nations to protect one another from the Soviet Union, a country that hasn’t existed for more than 30 years. Even onetime peace activist Bernie Sanders voted in favor, showing that the Vermont Senator has essentially given up any semblance of independence and is a good Democrat who will never cross the party leadership on substantive matters.

Ukraines Präsident im ZDF : Das Selenskyj-Interview in ganzer Länge

ZDF heute journal: Warum ist die Beziehung zu Bundeskanzler Scholz so kompliziert?

Selenskyj: Ich glaube, es gibt eine gewisse Skepsis in der Beziehung der Führung Deutschlands der Ukraine gegenüber. Ich glaube nicht, dass diese Skepsis auf Bundeskanzler Scholz zurückzuführen ist, ich glaube nicht, dass sie neu ist. Ich glaube, wir haben wunderbare Beziehungen zwischen beiden Völkern und recht gute Beziehungen zwischen den Führungen beider Staaten.

Aber ich glaube, diese Skepsis kommt vor allem zum Ausdruck, wenn es um die künftige Mitgliedschaft der Ukraine in der EU und der Nato geht, diese Skepsis war leider auch in der Zeit vor Bundeskanzler Scholz zu spüren. Es gab diese Haltung und ich bin zuversichtlich, dass sich diese Haltung ändern wird.
