News of great interest in the peace demonstration in Berlin. Last Minute GERMANY, BERLIN, Russia, headlines and events



According to organizers, at least 50,000 people demonstrated in Berlin demanding an end to German arms supplies to Ukraine and negotiations to end the war.

10,000 people were expected to take part in the protest, which is a follow-up to a petition called “Peace Manifesto” launched under the leadership of Left Party MP Sarah Wagenknecht and feminist writer Alice Schwarzer.

While leftist and pro-peace groups of various views supported the call of Wagenknecht and Alisa Schwarzer, who occupy a controversial position in the Left Party, the extreme right-wing circles supporting Russia also joined the action. Speaking at a demonstration in front of the world-famous Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Wagenknecht called for a halt to arms supplies to Ukraine. The politician, who wants Ukraine and Russia to come together for peace talks, said: “There is no other way to end the terrible suffering and death in Ukraine.”

Describing the risk of the war spreading to Europe and the whole world as “very big”, Wagenknecht said that the German government supports the extension and expansion of the war by providing military support to Ukraine.

The “Peace Manifesto” campaign launched by Sarah Wagenknecht with Alice Schwarzer two weeks ago received more public support than expected. The appeal, signed by hundreds of well-known faces from different segments, has so far been signed by more than 640,000 people.

The manifesto criticizes Russia’s attack on Ukraine and asks the German government to act as a mediator in negotiations and peace talks. After the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and the racist magazine Kompakt supported the campaign, many left-wing organizations called for no participation in today’s demonstration.

Support for events in Ukraine

On the other hand, yesterday and today demonstrations took place in various German cities, especially in Berlin, to express solidarity with Ukraine and end the war that Russia is waging in Ukraine.

Hundreds of people gathered in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the historic gate covered in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. The demonstrators, who chanted slogans in support of Ukraine, carried anti-Russian banners, as well as Ukrainian flags.
President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at an event held at Bellevue Palace, the presidential building, stressed that, like Germany, they value the courage and strength of Ukrainians.

Stating that Germany was not involved in the war, but that the war was closely linked to Germany, Steinmeier said: “After the Second World War, there was a war of conquest in the heart of Europe. The war in Europe is back,” he said.

After Steinmeier’s speech, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky also made a short speech via videoconference. Zelensky thanked Germany, other countries, the US and NATO for their support. Prime Minister Olaf Scholz also confirmed that his country supports Ukraine on the anniversary of the war. Scholz also said Germany had increased the number of Leopard 2 A6 main battle tanks it had committed to supply to Ukraine from 14 to 18.
