Schroeder called Putin’s chief lobbyist, and he continues to work on this title
The ex-Chancellor of Germany and head of the Board of Directors of “Rosneft” Gerhard Schroeder urged to cancel sanctions against Russia, explaining that they still will not change Moscow’s policy towards Ukraine.
He said this in an interview with a German newspaper, reports DW.
“Right now, when because of the crisis in connection with the coronavirus tough in terms of economic times, we need more cooperation. Therefore meaningless sanctions should be cancelled,” he said.
The journalist reminded the “friend” of Putin that Russia is punished with sanctions due to the annexation of the Crimea and war against Ukraine in the Donbas.
“But it’s the wrong answer. Who believes that Russia can be forced to do anything with sanctions, he is mistaken. No Russian President will never give Crimea back to Ukraine,” – said Schroeder.
