Doris Schröder-Köpf: Retreat for Gerhard Schröder

Monday, August 28th, 2017 | World News

The SPD politician and former Chancellor Doris Schröder-Köpf criticizes Angela Merkel's policy on Russia. "I think he is working with his current possibilities on what he started in 1998: a good and indestructible bond between Germans and Russians. Here, too, a confrontational policy must fail ! ", Wrote the Lower Saxony SPD parliamentary deputy on former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder on their Facebook side. Schroeder wants to become a supervisory board at the state oil company Rosneft. The Kremlin-controlled group has been subject to EU sanctions because of the Russian annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.Schröder-Köpf stresses that a good relationship with Russia – as in Turkey – is the most important political legacy of Schröder's Chancellorship. In 2005 the opportunity of lasting peace, close friendship and European partnership was close at hand. Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) was different: "After 2005, there was also a political temperature drop in this field. Gerhard Schröder noted this with horror." Schröder, who is also the head of the shareholder committee at the majority of the Russian-owned operator consortium of the Nord Stream Nord Stream pipeline, wants to appear in Rotenburg an der Wümme this Wednesday in the SPD election campaign. Chancellor candidate Martin Schulz had distanced himself from the Rosneft plans of Schroeder ("I would not do that.")
