Talks with Putin

The former head of the Christian Democratic Union admitted that last year she tried to talk to Russian President Vladimir Putin about the new European security order. But, as she pointed out, the Russian president did not want to raise the issue anymore.

The former chancellor announced her readiness to mediate a solution to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. However, she indicated that this issue has not been brought up at the moment. She also admitted that her departure could have been taken into account when Russia was planning an attack on Ukraine.

– She said: – My departure could have contributed to this, as well as the elections in France, the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the stagnation in the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Counselor’s incompetence

Merkel also acknowledged the helplessness she felt at the end of her tenure as chancellor.

“It was clear I wouldn’t be in the position, so I just have to say several attempts over the past year have failed,” she said.

Merkel also warned European politicians not to take Putin seriously. His brutal attack on Ukraine is a turning point in Europe’s post-war history and will have repercussions for many years to come. For this reason, Merkel supported the policy of her successor Olaf Schulz (Social Democratic Party).
