Left German party addresses the statement against anti-Russian sanctions

Deputy Chairperson of the National Committee of the Left Party in Bundestag Sahra Wagenknecht has called German authorities to pursue the policy that would be independent from US. She has noted that new US-initiated sanctions against Russia have clearly demonstrated that America wants to only defend its economic interests, TASS reports.

“This is why we have to adapt European and German policy to serve their own interests. On the basis of security in Europe we need to return to de-escalate tensions in regard to Russia,” Wagenknecht has stated.

Earlier the leader of the liberal Free Democratic Party of Germany Christian Lindner has suggested German authorities to abandon anti-Russian sanctions implemented because of Crimea issue. He has called the problem “a long-term temporary condition.”

As we reported before, US President Donald Trump has signed the new round of anti-Russian sanctions earlier approved by the US House of Representatives, RIA Novosti reports. This law implements personal and sectoral sanctions not only towards Russian individuals and companies, but also Iran and North Korea. Also US-Russian cooperation with European companies on the Northern Stream-2 project is now under ban. Association of European Business (AEB) has expressed its opposition in connection with new round of sanctions.

Leaders of some European countries, such as France, Germany and Austria, strongly opposed the sanctions as well.

Russkiy Mir


Russian language does not have days off. It is not afraid of pandemics. And sometimes it benefits from self-isolation of those who seek to master it. Having worked online for months, Russian language courses around the world are setting to actively accepts students into offline groups. The Russkiy Mir contacted teachers from different countries and found out that the lockdown and experience in e-teaching opened up new opportunities for specialists in Russian philology. Some of them conceived the idea to develop a system of electronic textbooks and globalize the programs; others initiated active engagement of lecturers and guests from all over the world for their online classes, and also mastered advanced training for teachers in virtual environment.
Starting from Peter the Great days, Russian glossary of nautical terms was compiled based on Dutch terms. Furthermore, it experienced a significant impact from English, German and Italian terminology. Events associated with naval glory of Russia can be reconstructed through interpretation of those inherent terms. The Battle of Chesma is one of such events.
