Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Proud to wear UID #40 here @ET 😅

Always had great respect for Berlin mayor Willy Brandt ... he visited the States on many occasions. I recall listening to a late night talk show interview from the "home" of Stan Musial, a retired St. Louis Cardinals baseball great. An outstanding statesman Europe can be proud of. Solving fiscal and economic problems to consolidate Das Deutsche Wirtschaftswunder of the Adenauer and Erhard period of rebuilding West-Germany.

It will be hard to negociate with the ultras after we arm them and offer them the country on a plate...
From 2015:
"When Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Ukraine's prime minister, told a German TV station recently that the Soviet Union invaded Germany, was this just blind ignorance? Or a kind of perverted wishful thinking? If the USSR really was the aggressor in 1941, it would suit Yatsenyuk's narrative of current geopolitics in which Russia is once again the only side that merits blame.

When Grzegorz Schetyna, Poland's deputy foreign minister, said Ukrainians liberated Auschwitz, did he not know that the Red Army was a multinational force in which Ukrainians certainly played a role but the bulk of the troops were Russian? Or was he looking for a new way to provoke the Kremlin?"
