The aggressor’s propaganda widely spread last days the manipulative statement of Sahra Wagenknecht, the member of the German Bundestag from the Left Party, that allegedly “it is unrealistic to force the Russian Federation to give up Crimea”, that allegedly “the Russians kept their Black Sea Fleet in Crimea for decades, they will not give it up” and that allegedly “Europe not interested in further escalation of the war”.
It is worth stating that this is far from the first anti-Ukrainian thesis of Mrs. Wagenknecht and that before the large-scale Russian aggression, she allowed herself tougher propaganda statements as part of the criminal “Russian measure” agenda.
Current Wagenknecht’s activities, who comes from a family of functionaries of the USSR-controlled “German Democratic Republic”, who joined the totalitarian Socialist Democratic Party of Germany on the eve of the collapse of the communist dictatorship in 1989, who wrote articles in 1992 praising Stalin and then built his career on the basis of “orthodox Marxism”, do not surprise.
Another characteristic is that since 2014 Russian propaganda and the “expert environment” have massively announced Wagenknecht’s future role as a “locomotive of German politics”, even – “to replace Merkel”, and that since 2015 this “orthodox Marxist” really became the co-chair of the Left Party parliamentary faction in the Bundestag. In addition to anti-Ukrainian rhetoric, Wagenknecht’s political activity was accompanied by her accusations of anti-Semitism, her calls to “conclude a security treaty with Russia”, to limit vaccination against the coronavirus and, at the same time, to legalize same-sex marriage in Germany.
However, since 2012, Sara Wagenknecht’s statements and activities have been monitored by the German Federal Service for the Protection of the Constitution as threatening democracy, and in 2019, this deputy “suddenly” announced the termination of the leadership of the faction in the Bundestag, allegedly “for personal reasons”.
Therefore, for now, Wagenknecht has somewhat “reduced her value” in the eyes of her Russian curators, and her mentioned pro-Russian rhetoric has no influence not only on German society or politics, but also on colleagues from the Left Party, which currently hold up to 5% of seats in the German parliament.
