The office of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is closely monitoring the mistakes of Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock, despite the lack of public criticism from the authorities. This was reported on January 29 by Bild, citing a source in the government.
“In the office of the chancellor, Burbock’s mistakes are carefully recorded,” the source said.
According to him, Scholz allegedly adheres to the principle not to speak badly about his ministers, regardless of the attitude towards them. At the same time, reasons for Burbock’s dissatisfaction have recently begun to appear more and more often, the report says.
At a PACE meeting in Strasbourg on January 24, Burbock said that European countries were “waging war against Russia.” However, later, commenting on her words, the German Embassy in the Russian Federation told Izvestiya that support for the Kyiv regime does not make the FRG a party to the conflict.
On January 27, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the German Foreign Ministry should clarify its position on the country’s status in the conflict in Ukraine.
On January 28, the head of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, Tino Krupalla, demanded that Burbock be fired after talking about Europe’s war against Russia. According to him, his unprofessional behavior Burbock endangers the very existence of Germany.
