AfD leader Tino Chrupalla condemns arms deliveries to Ukraine. On the other hand, he called for direct diplomatic dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In addition, it is the primary task of German politicians to represent German interests.
AfD chairman Tino Chrupalla demands according to Phoenix by the federal government a different way of dealing with Russia in the current situation. He generally rejects arms deliveries to Ukraine and believes direct talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin are necessary. He said on Monday in Phoenix-Interview:
“Dialogue and diplomacy must take place on both sides, Kyiv and Moscow, one must try to bring both negotiating and warring parties to the table.”
The Lausitzer is critical of the fact that German politicians are only going to Kyiv to “take selfies” and are not traveling on to Moscow to talk to Putin.
The primary task of German politicians should be to represent German interests, as the AfD boss emphasizes. This primarily includes guaranteeing energy security despite the oil embargo and securing jobs. However, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) let himself be driven by the CDU and the Greens and delivered heavy weapons to Ukraine. The AfD considers this a “really serious mistake”. They fear being drawn into the conflict. Ultimately, only “Putin has the decision as to whether we are a party to the war or not by supplying weapons,” summed up the AfD federal spokesman.
