BERLIN, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Chairman of the Left Party's faction in the Bundestag Gregor Gysi criticized the German government for its attitude to the right-wing forces in the Ukrainian government, where, he said in Bundestag on Thursday, “many Nazis are represented”.
Even so, the USA, the European Union and the German Cabinet “immediately recognized this interim government”, said Gysi who believes the German Government “should have at least drawn the line - for the sake of the German history alone”.
Gysi noted verbal “attacks on Jews and leftists in Ukraine”.
“You are not opposing this, but you are talking to the people of Svoboda [Ukrainian radical nationalist party],” he told the German government describing this as a “scandal”.
Meanwhile, Chairwoman of the Green Party faction Katrin Goering-Eckardt said, “We should not make pretence as if right forces took the lead” in the Ukrainian government. Svoboda and Right Sector parties “without doubt have nothing in common with European values and democratic ideas," she added.
“We should clearly distance ourselves from this,” said Goering-Eckardt, hoping “democracy and freedom in Ukraine will handle this”.
