Aforeign minister Annalena Bärbock (Greens) has called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to stop the war of aggression against Ukraine. "This is a war you will not win," said the Green politician on Thursday at a UN Security Council meeting in New York on the situation in Ukraine. She did not name Putin. At the same time she demanded: "Stop sending even more of your own citizens to their deaths." powers the whole world".

Baerbock criticized the Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, who left the Security Council session immediately after his speech. It is a clear sign that Lavrov spoke for quite a while but did not even mention hunger, poverty and the consequences of war around the world. There are no queues of volunteers wanting to join the war in Ukraine on the streets of Moscow, Baerbock said. "What we see instead are brave men, women and even children taking to the streets because they don't want to be part of this war against Ukraine," she added.
