Roderich, foreign politician of the CDU Kiesewetter sees no possibility of lasting peace in Ukraine through negotiations with Russia. “There is nothing to negotiate with Putin. Putin wants Ukraine to disintegrate,” Kiesewetter told the Germany editorial network (Sunday). The CDU politician is chairman of the Bundestag’s secret service control committee and chairman of the foreign affairs committee.
“The only way out is that we have to make Russia withdraw from Ukraine,” Kiesewetter said. “There will be no solution through negotiation, neutrality or a similar negotiated result would hardly mean lasting peace. With Putin, that no longer exists.” Forced neutrality is also incompatible with a democracy.
According to Kiesewetter, security guarantees for Ukraine could be possible through the UN Security Council. However, the most powerful body of the United Nations must formulate a clause that annuls the right of veto of its five permanent members – the USA, Russia, China, Great Britain and France – in case of violation of these guarantees. “Otherwise, veto countries like Russia, which launch attacks themselves, could veto any aid. We need, so to speak, the right to vote in the UN Security Council, otherwise guarantees are worthless.”
