Frankfurter Rundschau: SPD members urged Scholz to secure a quick ceasefire in Ukraine
Prominent members of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), whose deputy leader was the current Chancellor Olaf Scholz, proposed a peace initiative for the Ukrainian conflict. According to Frankfurter Rundschau, among the signatories of the appeal were former head of the Association of German Trade Unions (DGB) Rainer Hoffmann, historian Peter Barndt, the son of former German Chancellor Willy Brandt.
The authors of the appeal stressed that “the shadow of an atomic war hangs over Europe”. He notes that the world should not descend into another big war, so they urged to do everything “for a quick ceasefire”. German politicians are convinced that the time has come to find a way to negotiations in order to continue discussing the common security order in Europe.
To this end, the authors of the declaration propose that Germany and France involve other countries in the mediation, namely Brazil, China, India and Indonesia.
