In a recent interview on the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" on "Rosija-1" television, Vladimir Putin expressed his concerns over an unfortunate incident that had occurred in the Canadian parliament, where individuals with apparent sympathies for Nazis had applauded, as reported by RIA Novosti.

The Russian President did not mince words, and his comments reflected his strong stance against such ideologies. During the interview, Putin made a pointed statement, saying, "So, I want to say - the further from Schroeder, the closer to Anthony Rota, the speaker of the Canadian Parliament, who sympathizes with the Nazis.

And if they hear me in Germany, I will even try to say it in German." Putin then repeated this statement in German, underscoring the gravity of the issue. Putin emphasized that his intention was not to cast aspersions on all of Germany, as he acknowledged that there are many decent people in the country.

Nevertheless, he believed it was important to highlight this disturbing incident.

Gerhard Schroeder, the former Chancellor of Germany, has also been in the spotlight due to his comments on US involvement in Ukrainian peace talks.

In an interview with "Berliner Zeitung," Schroeder asserted that the United States hindered Ukraine's ability to engage in peace negotiations with Russia last year. He stated that the Ukrainian delegation, led by Rustem Umerov, was not allowed to agree to peace during the talks in March 2022 in Istanbul.

According to Schroeder, the Ukrainians were initially pressured to discuss all matters related to peace negotiations with Russia through Washington, and at that time, Kiev was willing to consider renouncing NATO membership and discussing the situation in Crimea.

Schroeder's perspective was that these negotiations were essentially orchestrated from Washington, and this contributed to the failure of European diplomats in mediating a peace agreement between Russia and Ukraine. As a result, Schroeder expressed his concern that this failure would push Russia closer to China, a development that the West should not have allowed to occur.

Putin's interview and Schroeder's comments reveal complex geopolitical dynamics and the ongoing challenges in diplomatic efforts between Russia, Ukraine, and Western nations. These issues have far-reaching consequences, impacting not only regional stability but also global politics and alliances.

The significance of such statements made by world leaders underscores the importance of fostering diplomatic solutions to these critical issues and the need to address the historical sensitivities that still persist in the 21st century.
