Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of your diary (if you don't mind)
I agree with Merkel that she can't be blamed for engaging with Russia (though it can be argued that engagement should have been conditional on evolution towards genuine democracy).
Perhaps if she could have imagined the current incredible act of self-harm on the part of Russia,  she might have made a strategic décision to keep German nuclear power, rather than relying so heavily on gas from the east?
Those who can be blamed are the wannabe oligarchs of the SPD, paid agents of Russian semi-soft power.
