« Activists gathered in Bremen on Friday to claim against the conflict between Ukraine and Russia.
Demonstrators held banners opposing the German government’s policy towards the ongoing conflict calling for an end to hostilities. According to police estimates, about 200 to 300 residents took part in the protest.
« Today I spoke about how closely profit politics is connected with misguided political power. Especially in Germany, we have a past that is marked by wars. It must not happen to us again. That is why I reminded politicians today that they have to think very carefully about the decisions they make », said Roman Fabian, a spokesperson of the German left party ‘Die Linke’, who attended the rally.
In the past months, several protests have been held across Germany, condemning the country’s involvement in the Russia-Ukraine conflict through the shipment of weapons to Kiev.
In mid-May, Germany announced a €2.7 billion ($2.9 billion) military aid package to Ukraine, marking its largest package since the start of the military offensive.
Russia launched its military action in Ukraine in late February 2022 after recognising the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), claiming that Kiev had failed to guarantee their special status under the 2014 Minsk Agreements, and urging Ukraine to declare itself officially neutral and give assurances that it would never join NATO.
Kiev denounced the Russian action as an invasion. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky imposed martial law throughout the country, announcing a general mobilisation, while the EU and the US imposed several rounds of sanctions on Moscow. »
