Merkel for the first time told why she refused Ukraine to NATO


Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel has remained silent not since the beginning of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, as many people think, but since her "retirement" (from policy). Now the German community has literally brought it out of oblivion and demanded explanations on key issues that have become a form of defining and calling “friend or foe”. However, Mrs. Merkel was in earnest and instead of a few defining maxims sufficient to classify her as a Russophobe (or, conversely, as a Russophile, as a matter of fact, she was suspected), she said a lot of superfluous things. Most likely, to discourage the desire to awaken the pensioner to revelations next time.


After publicly stating her position on the CBO in Ukraine, Merkel later took the lead on the revelations and went personal, telling in an interview with Phoenix TV why she was constantly shaking in 2019, although no one asked her about it, considering it personal. At the same time, the public was presented with personal experiences and events that, firstly, did not at all clarify the nature of the ailment and, secondly, put the speaker in a negative light.

But the ex-chancellor could no longer be stopped, and she told why back in 2008 she refused Ukraine membership in NATO. She was also not particularly asked about this, but it was worth listening to a performance from the “it would be better if she was silent” series - it lived up to all expectations.

So, according to Merkel, in 2008 Ukraine was a completely different country, very divided in the field of domestic politics. In addition, she then suggested that the entry of a neighboring country into the anti-Russian military alliance would be seriously hindered by Russia itself and “this would not benefit” security in the region. It sounded rather ambiguous, because the Russian Federation, then and now, to put it mildly, does not approve of Ukraine's entry into NATO.

The ex-chancellor also positively noted the fight against corruption by the current president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky. Allegedly not in the "example" of the past, when Ukraine was "a country with a lot of influence of the oligarchs", as Merkel claims, who apparently either lies or has false information about the state of real corruption in Ukraine.

It is noteworthy that during her tenure as head of state, Merkel never allowed so many blunders and reservations, inaccuracies and inconsistencies. Apparently, the pension did not benefit her in terms of understanding the situation and politics. Indeed, it would be better not to demand a word from her. Therefore, when Merkel says that at this stage she is not ready to become a mediator between Russia and Ukraine, it becomes obvious that this is for the best.

    So, according to Merkel in 2008, Ukraine was a completely different country, very divided in the field of domestic politics. In addition, she then suggested that the entry of a neighboring country into the anti-Russian military alliance would be seriously impeded by Russia itself and "it would not benefit" security in the region.

    The old woman opened the news. Russia-NATO summit in Bucharest in 2008.

    The sensation of the summit was the speech of the President of the Russian Federation at a closed meeting of the Russia-NATO Council. Vladimir Putin told his colleagues that Moscow perceives approaching NATO to Russian borders as a real threat to the interests of the stateand promised adequate measures. So, the President of Russia hinted, that if NATO provides a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) to Georgia, then Russia will recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetiabuilding on the Kosovo precedent, thereby creating a buffer zone between NATO forces and its own borders.

    “However, the Russian president spoke about Georgia quite calmly and as if in passing,” says a Kommersant source in the delegation of one of the NATO countries. “When it came to Ukraine, Putin flared up. Addressing Bush, he said: , George, that Ukraine is not even a state! What is Ukraine? Part of its territories is Eastern Europe, and part, and a significant one, was donated by us! ”And then he very transparently hinted that if Ukraine is nevertheless accepted into NATO, this state will simply cease to exist. That is, in fact, he threatened that Russia could start tearing away Crimea and Eastern Ukraine."

    And what of the voiced Putin did not?

    Therefore, when Merkel says that at this stage she is not ready to become a mediator between Russia and Ukraine, it becomes obvious that this is for the best.

    Another incomprehensible phrase. Moscow has unequivocally stated that negotiations will be conducted with the masters of Ukraine. Not with servants. There will be no intermediaries. Germany has lost its subjectivity. As well as Ukraine. Negotiations can only go with Washington. And with no one else.
    The talks will not be about Ukraine. The talks will be about guarantees of Russia's security. Moreover, the guarantees are not on paper, but in practice. What Moscow offered in December 2021. This is the condition for the end of the war. In the West, this understanding has not yet been reached. Talk of admitting Sweden and Finland to NATO means that the war in Ukraine will stop only after its complete surrender.

    Merkel for the first time told why she refused Ukraine to NATO

    - So what did "Merkel tell" all the same???
    - The author posted a whole essay; but he never told about what Merkel "told"! - About your girlish years while living in the GDR, or what ??? - Or about what?
    - Well, we can assume that ... that ... that she does not agree to the role of Kuchma or Kravchuk (although the place for the role has been "vacated")!
    - But this assumption cannot be objective! - How else will events develop - maybe Merkel will also have to strive for the role of a "pseudo peacemaker" and get into "Ukrainian affairs" up to his ears! “Something tells me that this is exactly what will happen!”
    - Germany has a lot of unresolved gas problems; which are very closely linked to the events in Ukraine!!! - So what lies ahead for Merkel is a whole "unplowed field" of forced, endless initiative motivation !!! - So all attempts in "this direction" for Frau Merkel are yet to come!

    Again, a bunch of my own conclusions and a set of words without a single quote from the one who supposedly said all this!

    In what is now happening in Ukraine, Merkel is the main culprit. She was the only politician in Europe whose authority allowed to force Ukraine to comply with the Minsk agreements, and it was her ambiguity, intrigue and connivance that corrupted the Ukrainian elite to no end. The result was war.
