That the situation in the European Union again reminded of the cold war - the result of a failed foreign policy of the West, said the Deputy head of the conservative party, the eurosceptic "Alternative for Germany" (AfD) Alexander Gauland, interview published.
"It was very clear that with the end of the military Alliance of the Warsaw Pact ended And NATO. However, the Alliance decided to get close to the Russian frontier, And in the end we took the " cold war 2. 0 ". But to build a new European order Was to elect a completely different way, " believes Howland.
Referring to the conflict in Donbas, the German Politician said that " Ukraine has always been And remains part of the historical, political, cultural, and religious spheres of influence of Russia. And build a new state it will be able only in cooperation with Russia, But not in opposition to it."
To the West it Was necessary to meticulously examine what, that is, are Russian desires, and then try to establish a new order, which would take into account both the Ukrainian And Russian priorities. Maybe this would be easy, maybe it could fail. But the West never tried to do it, says Howland.
The politician described the sending of American military trainers to Ukraine as from the beginning false move." Every movement, aimed at the intensification of the conflict, that's wrong, " he said. Especially with the participation of American citizens. All the contradictions in the EU must be resolved by the European diplomats without the intervention of external forces, said Alexander Gauland.
