Is Germany blind about Russia? | Ep. 110

June 15, 2022

In this episode of the Explaining Ukraine podcast, we will talk about Germany and its indecisive stance with regard to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Why is Germany reluctant to engage more with Ukraine, to supply arms Ukrainians are asking for, and to acknowledge that its traditional policy of seeking compromise with Russia has failed? Our guests are the famous German politicians Marieluise Beck and Ralf Fücks, co-founders of the Center for Liberal Modernity in Berlin. We are holding this conversation in Kyiv, during their second visit to the Ukrainian capital since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and as they are on their way to Kharkiv, a city 40 km from the Russian border and 30 km from the frontline. Host: Volodymyr Yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher and chief editor of UkraineWorld is brought to you by Internews Ukraine. Support us on Patreon
