#Germany has reportedly rejected #Ukraie's request for military equipment.

Whatever the cause - "provocation of Russia" "undermining position of neutral mediator" "not wanting to get entangled" - it exposes a huge double standard in DE's approach to aggressor & innocent victim.>
Aggressor Russia gets it all. Siemens turbines supplied to RU-occupied Crimea, in violation of #EU-sanctions, to make RU occupation energy sustainable. No consequences except for a meaningless apology.
Germany's Deutsche Bank is the place to go for Russian money laundering schemes and for financing the Kremlin's world-wide corruption. No serious consequences like criminal prosecution - just fines (which are always anticipated and built into the cost of doing business).
#Germany's #Daimler supplying #Russia's Kamaz OJSC to produce armoured vehicles - some of which #Moscow is using in military operations in its war of aggression against #Ukraine, including in RU-occupied #Donbas, Ukraine.
The pursuit of corrupt #NordStream2 pipeline that undermines the #EU's energy security, and makes #Ukraine vulnerable to a larger scale military invasion by #Russia, kills its energy infrastructure, and deprives it of billions in gas transit fees.
Germany needs to face a moral choice of whether it is supporting the victim of unprovoked unlawful aggression, or playing the role of "mediator" who is enabling the criminal aggressor.

What we see in #Ukraine today is that people don't want to believe what they see with their own eyes, and what they hear directly from #Zelensky. The mix of people's hopefulness and Zelensky's #populism is blinding them to reality.
There is clear evidence that #Russia-connected #Yanukovych era power brokers have influence in #Zelensky's power vertical. Yet people pretend either that this isn't happening, or that it is not relevant, and will not impact Zelensky's presidency.
#Zelensky's inaugural speech echoed several RU propaganda narratives:
-#Kyiv is "responsible for continuation of war
-Kyiv "neglected RU speakers"
-Kyiv "abandoned people in occupied UA"
-"#Ukrainian is divisive factor in UA"
-"post-Maidan govt was the biggest problem in UA"
