Her embassy of Russia in Germany announced today that the Berlin’s decision to approve the delivery of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine it means abandoning its “historical responsibility towards Russia” arising from Nazi crimes during the Second World War.
In its statement, the embassy states that the deliveries of those in question tanks will escalate the conflict to a new level and lead to “sustained escalation”.
“This n extremely dangerous decision it will lead the conflict to a new level of confrontation and contradicts the statements of German politicians about the reluctance of the Federal Republic of Germany to be drawn into it,” said Russian ambassador Sergey Netzaev.
“It destroys what is left of mutual trust, it causes irreparable damage to the already deplorable state of Russo-German relations and casts doubt on the possibility of their normalization in the foreseeable future,” he added.
Russia, as APE-MPE notes, has already stated that such weapons will only succeed in prolonging the war and suffering in Ukraine and that the West is “deluding itself” if it believes otherwise.
“The choice of Berlin marks the final refusal of the Federal Republic of Germany to recognize its historical responsibility towards our people about the terrible, timeless crimes of Nazism during the Great Patriotic War and conjures into oblivion the difficult road of post-war reconciliation between Russians and Germans,” said Netzaev.
“With the approval of the leadership of Germany, tanks with German crosses will again be sent to the ‘eastern front’, which will inevitably lead to the deaths of not only Russian soldiers, but also the civilian population,” added the Russian ambassador.
