About 200 former high-ranking representatives of the ruling coalition of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) made a big request to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz for the speedy negotiations on a cessation of hostilities in Ukraine. This is reported by TASS, referring to the newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau.
More than 200 former high-ranking representatives of the ruling coalition of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) have appealed to Chancellor Olaf Scholz to advocate for early negotiations to end hostilities in Ukraine. It is noted that among those who made the request was the son of the former German Chancellor Willy Brandt, as well as trade unionists.
“The danger of an escalation of hostilities is growing every day. The shadow of a nuclear war hung over Europe. But the world should not slide into a new big war”, the address to the German leader says.
It is known that representatives of the SPD coalition demanded from the leader of the country that he should involve Brazil, China, India and Indonesia in the achievement of a truce as soon as possible. They believe that this is the only way to pave the way for a common order and security in Europe.
“We urge the German chancellor, together with France, in particular, to involve Brazil, China, India and Indonesia in mediation in order to achieve a truce as soon as possible. This would be a necessary step towards stopping the killing and exploring the possibilities for peace. Only then will it be possible to pave the way for a common security order in Europe.
It is known that the authors of this appeal to the German Chancellor are the historian Peter Brandt, the son of the ex-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Willy Brandt, as well as the former chairman of the Association of German Trade Unions Rainer Hofmann and the former Bundestag deputy from the SPD Michael Müller. The publication claims that among the signatories to this appeal was the ex-European Commissioner for Entrepreneurship and Industry Günther Verheugen, the ex-chairman of the Bundestag Wolfgang Thierse and many former high-ranking trade unionists.
“The policy of peace and detente, to which we owe the unity of Germany and the overcoming of the European split, has not become obsolete. We have worked for these purposes in the past and continue to do so today. Peace can only be concluded on the basis of international law and only with Russia,” the authors of the appeal summed up.
