Former Austrian Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache said that Western and especially German politicians have been silent for years and put up with the processes in Ukraine because they are not interested in the peaceful resolution of the preconditions of the current conflict. -leader of the right-wing Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ).

“Politicians in the West have endured the process that has been going on for years, namely, incitement to war,” he said at a demonstration in Dresden, Germany.

He reminded that during the coup in Ukraine in 2014, the legitimately elected government was overthrown using undemocratic methods and violence, and as a result, the conflicts that broke out in eastern Ukraine cost the lives of thousands of people.

“Where would the world’s German and European politicians have said ‘stop’ back then? They remained silent. They remained silent even when Russian was banned as a state language.”

Strache described the conflict in Ukraine as “an interim war” on behalf of Kiev. According to her, former German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s admission of the meaninglessness of the Minsk agreements confirms that Europe only wants to buy time to arm Ukraine.

“So where is the international peace movement now? Where are the peace-loving greens and social democrats that once existed? They are the biggest warmongers today,” he said, referring to the ruling parties in Germany.

Stressing that despite political differences, a protest for peace must be “supra-partisan”, Strache called for participation in the protest announced today in Berlin by left-wing politician Sarah Wagenknecht.
