KIEV, November 9. /TASS/. Germany’s ex-Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has been placed into the ‘database’ of Ukraine’s nefarious doxing website, Mirotvorets, (or Peacekeeper), in its so-called ‘Purgatory’ section.
"Attacking Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Manipulation of publicly important information. Anti-Ukrainian propaganda," are what the website cites as the reasons for including the former German chancellor on its odious list.
To prove its point, the website quoted Schroeder as saying that the Ukrainian government is fighting a war against Donbass. One more reason why he has been added to the list is his criticism of the EU’s policy on Ukraine. "The European Commission’s leadership doesn’t have the slightest idea of how deeply Ukraine is split in cultural terms and that it cannot be treated as it used to be," the Mirotvorets doxing website cited him as saying. According to the German ex-leader, the EC initially made a huge mistake by offering Ukraine an association agreement with the EU, which basically made Kiev choose between them and Russia," Schroeder was quoted as saying.
Furthermore, the German ex-chancellor told Aachener Nachrichten that he recognized Crimea as part of Russia. "This is a reality, which we will need to recognize sooner or later. Besides, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev in 1954 gifted Crimea, which had previously belonged to Russia, to Ukraine, then a Soviet republic. He thought that Soviet communism would live as long as the Catholic Church. Luckily, it didn’t," Schroeder stated.
Schroeder served as Germany’s chancellor from 1998 to 2005. After leaving politics, he became engaged in public affairs and business, particularly, he is Chairman of the Board of Russia’s oil giant Rosneft and also Chairman of the Shareholders’ Committee of Nord Stream AG, a Gazprom-led consortium established for the construction of a pipeline carrying Russian natural gas to Germany.
Ukraine’s Mirotvorets doxing website calls itself a database, which includes people who allegedly help Donbass, but in fact, it publishes personal information of reporters, artists and politicians, who’ve visited the Crimea or Donbass, or just didn’t fit the liking of the website’s administrators for some reason. The Mirotvorets website doesn’t have any official status, but Ukrainian border guards don’t let people on the list enter the country.
