Leading German media "Bild" declares unconditional victory in Moscow "Putin Won"

One of the leading German media Bild declared unconditional victory in Moscow and, in particular, Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a situation that has arisen between the European states because of Ukrainian conflict.

Columnist Paul Rontshaymer in his article says that the very place of the next meeting on the conflict in the Donets Basin suggests that guidelines shifted towards Russia, and Moscow will set the tone.

Also commentator opined that the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko at this stage of the conflict is willing to give up some territory after the loss of the Crimea. In addition, Rontshaymer sure that Putin's influence makes powerless Western politicians.

Today Merkel and Hollande will arrive in Moscow to discuss ways to solve the Ukrainian conflict.

With sharp words of US politician John McCain

Frontal attack of the influential US Senator John McCain on Angela Merkel, a few hours before she meets in Moscow at the Super Summit on Vladimir Putin: In a ZDF interview, the Republicans said, the behavior of Europe in Ukraine conflict was for him "a huge disappointment ".

He had "not expect anything else," he said, criticizing in particular the Chancellor, "they do not know because where the weapons for the separatists and the troops come from?" And: "Will you just watch how a country in Europe first time is fragmented since the Second World War? "

Summit of the allegation: appeasement (German: "appeasement"). The US senator compared their rejection of arms supplies to Ukraine with the fatal international attitude towards Hitler's Germany in the 30s before the Second World War. Historians believe that timely and tough defense would have stopped Hitler in his megalomania.


The term was coined by the appeasement of the British government against Hitler. She was initially characterized by understanding, concessions and restraint, in the hope that the aggressor will in return provide no further claims to power.

Devastating low point: To avert a war in Europe, the government of Neville Chamberlain, Hitler's annexation of the Czech Republic ("Munich Agreement") accepted in the fall of 1938.

Only a few months before London had been silent when Hitler invaded Austria. Since there was no significant resistance in the population, one could consider it as "internal affair", so the argument goes.

John McCain: "If the attitude of the German government to look at, one might think that she does not know or does not care that people are being slaughtered in Ukraine."

With indignation CDU General Secretary Peter Tauber responded (40): "Fortunately, we have a Chancellor who weigh words and actions and does not act like a cowboy," he said. The SPD foreign policy expert Niels Annen (41) cited the remarks of US Senator "offensive": "No one in Europe has become so used to peace in Ukraine and Steinmeier and Merkel," Annen said to "time-line".

Both politicians demanded an immediate apology from McCain.

It is not the first time that the two main EU politicians talk with the Kremlin leaders about Ukraine. But the situation has worsened dramatically since the last exchange in Australia.

On the one hand, the chance for peace seems to be great as long, as seems to have grown on all sides to compromise. On the other hand, it is clear to everyone, which would mean a failure of the talks today and this weekend: An escalation of the war with incalculable consequences for Ukraine, Europe, possibly the world.

Russia had threatened in the event of military support from the West with serious consequences.

Kerry said after the interview, the Russian president had on Thursday added a new peace plan on the table.

US Vice President Joe Biden said during a visit to Brussels, the Ukraine currently fighting for their "survival". Russia continues to be heated conflict by sending "mercenaries and tanks" in the eastern Ukraine. In this situation, the United States and "Europe as a whole" would stand behind the Ukraine.

Behind closed doors plead foreign policy from the ranks of the CDU, however, that Kiev should consider the separatists to make far-reaching concessions to end the conflict. Their argument: If Ukraine to flourish with the EU, will reunify the country's medium very likely. See FRG and the GDR.

Merkel stressed that Hollande and "not as a neutral intermediary road" are, but wanted to bring national and European interests. They concern the peace in Europe and the self-determination of peoples.

Hollande had protested on Thursday, the EU plan was based but "on the territorial integrity of Ukraine". However, he clarifies: "France is not that the Ukraine NATO enters. I say the Russians who are concerned about it. "

Russia is at odds with France because Paris had stopped the extradition of two warships to Moscow because of Putin's aggressive policy Ukraine.

At the end decides McCain, but US President Obama

If the initiative of Merkel and Hollande fail to go top EU diplomats to a report in the newspaper "Die Welt" assumes that the US government begins with the delivery of "defensive weapons" such as anti-tank missiles and artillery to Kiev.

The spokesman of US President Barack Obama, Josh Earnest, however, emphasized in the discussion on possible deliveries would you look closely consult with Berlin. Merkel's opinion "means the President a lot." Obama welcomes Merkel on Monday in Washington.
