They say: be careful what youwish for.
Could anyone have imagined a couple of years ago that the Chancellor of Germany would take up and then resolve the complicated Crimean dilemma, by putting it in the context of German unification?
“If, for example, I hear that we need to simply recognize the Russian annexation of the Crimea, I argue as follows: what would have happened to us if then in the GDR there were such an attitude, along the lines of Germany is divided, there’s nothing to change,” – she said in an interview with reporters.
But in contrast, back in 2015, when Lavrov at the Munich conference, referring to the Crimean referendum, recalled that “the unification of Germany took place with no referendum at all, and we were active supporters of this,” the local audience started out of indignation and a wave of hissing came over the hall. Now the mention of the history of the Crimea and the unification of Germany, albeit clumsily set, but the point of view of the German leadership.
On the one hand, it’s great, nothing more to be said: Now we have an additional reinforced concrete argument, clearly indicating the historical justice of what happened.
So the people of Russia and Crimea, not the Crimea and Ukraine, were divided against their will, which is confirmed not only by the referendum of 2014, but also by earlier referendums, as well as by attempts to hold them, that took place from the time of the USSR’s collapse.
But on the other hand, I do not exclude the possibility that tomorrow the German media will write that “Russian hackers” the Germans are so scared of this time “hacked” not just the server of the campaign headquarters, but directly hacked the candidate. 😱
But in both cases, old Freud would have been pleased.
