The chairman of the German SPD Sigmar Gabriel and “his comrades from the Socialist International” unleashed the migration wave.
There are parallels between the events in Donbas and the events in, for example, Kosovo – both being self-proclaimed countries.
The two cases cannot be compared. In Kosovo, there was a war with thousands of casualties and hundreds of thousands of refugees, which the Western countries stopped. There was no war in Ukraine until Russian military aggression. Furthermore, the EU Council, back in 2008, specifically stressed that in view of the conflict of the 1990s and the extended period of international administration under SCR 1244, Kosovo constitutes a sui generis case which does not call into question these principles and resolutions. As regards Kosovo's independence, the EU Council has underlined the EU's adherence to the principles of the UN Charter and the Helsinki Final Act, inter alia the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity and all UN Security Council resolutions.
