Merkel honestly admitted why the Minsk agreements were needed

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke about the real goals of signing the Minsk agreements in February 2015 (Minsk-2). Along with Putin, Poroshenko and Hollande, she took part in the signing of the Declaration in support of the agreements on February 12 of the same year.

Munich in 1938 is somewhat reminiscent of Bucharest in 2008. Then, and then during the negotiations in Minsk, I was able to buy the time Ukraine needed to better repel the Russian attack. Now it is a strong, well-fortified country

- said the former chancellor of Germany in an interview with Spiegel magazine.

The Munich Agreement between Germany, Great Britain, France and Italy was signed in September 1938 and provided for the transfer of the Sudetenland by the Czech Republic to Germany. The agreement is often called the "Munich Agreement" and is considered an expression policy to appease Hitler in order to avoid a major war in Europe.

In April 2008, a NATO summit was held in Bucharest, on the agenda of which, in particular, were issues of accession to the Action Plan for Membership in the Western Bloc of Ukraine and Georgia. A number of media outlets referred to this event as a "summit of great hopes".

Minsk-2 was seen by many modern politicians as a great diplomatic victory that would put an end to the differences between the West and the East of Ukraine. However, in fact, the Minsk agreements were used by Kyiv to build up forces and receive military and diplomatic support from the West, which ultimately led to the start of a special operation of the RF Armed Forces on the territory of Ukraine.

    That is, our president was deceived by everyone and always. Negotiations and agreements with the Ukronazis and their masters are out of the question, only the complete surrender of crests plus the entire West. But for this you need to be decisive, not be afraid of anyone and get even the thought of what kind of negotiations. And we have an ammonia deal on the nose.

      And then they will concentrate this ammonia and blow it up - and announce a terrorist attack from our side. So our cardinal himself is glad to be deceived.
      Who just did not say that this is a scam. Even now, there is not enough spirit to officially recognize this regime as a Nazi, terrorist ... It is better to immediately fascist.

    There is nothing shameful in deceiving and outwitting the enemy; in war, only the result is important and nothing more. History is written by the winners, not the losers. Today, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are the most combat-ready and numerous army in Europe. Minsk 2 fully justified the hopes of Kyiv when it was signed, and Poroshenko undoubtedly outplayed the Kremlin's multi-move.

      In principle, you sounded everything correctly. But, they kept silent about the victory! There are doubts that the APU will win?

    It was already clear to everyone: they deceived the Kremlin simpleton and signed a treacherous agreement that doomed the Donetsk republics to the terror of Ukraine.

    And I remember in some other topic, some praised Merkel and argued that there would be no war under her. But now Merkel herself admitted that she was preparing this war against Russia.
