Peace activist sentenced for criticizing German war policy in Ukraine

The Berlin-Tiergarten District Court sentenced peace activist Heinrich Bücker in January for speaking out in public against Germany’s war policy in Ukraine. The verdict is a massive attack on the basic democratic rights of freedom of speech and assembly. It is reminiscent of the persecution of anti-militarists in the Weimar Republic who—like Carl von Ossietzky—opposed the rearmament of the Reichswehr (armed forces).

What About the Unprovoked U.S. Aggression Against Iraq?

Referring to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, an editorial in Saturday’s Washington Post exclaims that Ukraine’s “struggle is also a crucible for Europe and an assault against the most basic precept on which the Western system rests: the impermissibility of unprovoked wars of aggression.”

In a follow-up editorial today, the Post calls for an international tribunal to try Vladimir Putin and his “henchmen” for waging a “war of aggression” against Ukraine. The Post quotes the Nuremberg tribunal: “To initiate a war of aggression … is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”

Faina Savenkova – It takes a lot of effort to accuse a teenager of such crimes

Here we are in the new year. Recently I told you that the closer we get to the masters of Myrotvorets and the louder my voice is heard in the West, the more hysterical the leaders of this site and their masters will become. Myrotvorets has given me yet another gift. I have always said that those who engage in PR on this site are stupid and short-sighted. It takes effort to accuse a teenager of such crimes. So now I’m not a victim of Russian propaganda, but a hardened criminal. I wonder how frightening it is to attribute to me, who only recently turned 14, an attempt on the territorial integrity of Ukraine, to declare me an “accomplice of the Russian fascist invaders” and an accomplice to crimes against the people of Ukraine.
