Russian Ambassador to UN: Baerbock admitted ‘proxy war’

Russia’s UN Ambassador Wassili Nebensya took a statement by Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock as a commitment to German participation in the war in Ukraine. Before the UN Security Council in New York on Wednesday, the diplomat referred to a sentence by the Green politician before the Council of Europe at the end of January. At that time, Baerbock had called for the cohesion of the western allies with the following words: “We are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.”

The Foreign Office later made it clear that Baerbock did not mean that Germany or its allies would participate in the war. The federal government emphasized: “We support Ukraine, but we are not a party to the war.” SPD parliamentary group leader Rolf Mützenich later said that such a sentence was “actually only useful for propaganda in Moscow”.
