“If there really was a war, I find it unimaginable that this pipeline could still be put into operation,” Roettgen said in an interview published today. The politician points out, however, that “what is already allowed, should not be subject to sanctions.”
In the opinion of the candidate for the head of the German CDU, the declarations that Ukraine is fully supported by the transatlantic alliance are exaggerated.
“NATO will not be at war with Putin, he said. – Putin knows that. But he also needs to know that what we can do in return could hit his country hard. We do not want to isolate Russia. But if there was a war, there would be very severe economic sanctions against the entire regime“
– reports the portal dw.com. Roetthen noted that the new government, as the previous government did, is ruling out German arms supplies to Ukraine.
Let us recall that a similar position on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine was previously taken by the head of the European People’s Party in the EP, the German Christian Democrat Manfred Weber.
“If Putin reaches for a gun, it will be the end of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline”
Weber told Bild am Sonntag.
