The surprising acknowledgments by former Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and former French President Francois Hollande, that they supported the Minsk Process only as a subterfuge to buy time for the arming and training of Ukraine, represents a breaking point. This Minsk Agreement acquired the character of international law with UN Resolution 2202. How do the representatives of the “rules-based order” deal with international law?
For years they have repeated the mantra that the sanctions against Russia could be lifted only if the Minsk Agreement was to be fully implemented. But if the conclusion of this agreement was nothing but lip service, what was their intention?
What sense does any agreement with representatives of the West make, if it must be assumed that they will do what they say only if it serves to carry out their agenda? What is necessary to restore trust in international political relations? Is that even possible?
The speakers named above will discuss the dangers of the strategic situation, and the alternatives.
