C/U German Chancellor Angela Merkel
SOT Sahra Wagenknecht, Die Linke deputy chair (German):”Apparently the German government wanted to support the powers which stand for democracy, freedom and Europe against those that stand for an oligarchy, poverty, and corruption. Today you support a government, in which four ministers belong to an open anti-semitic, anti-Russian Nazi party. A government which heats up the conflict and today leads a brutal war against its own people. You support a president which won his election with his own wealth of billions which were robbed and a own TV channel, an oligarch which in terms of racketeering, corruption and illegal business activities is not even comparable to former president Yanukovych and by the way, once was even his minister.”
