Should unemployed Ukrainian refugees be despatched again to their homeland? This is what CSU regional group chief Dobrindt is demanding. FDP politician Strack-Zimmermann sharply criticizes the proposal.

FDP politician Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann has described the proposal by CSU regional group chief Alexander Dobrindt to ship Ukrainian refugees with out everlasting work again to their residence nation as “spooky”.

The Union is starting to distance itself from the destiny of the refugees and the battle in Ukraine, mentioned the MEP on Deutschlandfunk. This is strictly what Russian President Vladimir Putin is aiming for: “That we lose our nerve here, that we discuss things and slowly turn against Ukrainian refugees – who have come because they feared for their lives.”

“I find it bizarre”

There are not any areas in Ukraine that may be described as secure. Putin's missiles are hitting the Polish-Ukrainian border even within the far west of the nation. “I strongly recommend traveling there to see what tragedies are unfolding there,” mentioned Strack-Zimmermann. “I find it bizarre to judge this from the heat.” Dobrindt had known as for battle refugees to be despatched again “to safe areas of western Ukraine” if they don’t settle for work in Germany.

The FDP politician continued that it was proper that extra Ukrainians wanted to search out work in Germany. However, childcare was an issue, not a scarcity of will, notably for the various refugee girls. She accused the Union of conducting the dialogue about social advantages for refugees for electoral causes.

This was meant to draw AfD voters from the jap German states. “If we start using AfD terminology in the hope of getting votes, that won't work,” she burdened. State elections will probably be held in Brandenburg, Thuringia and Saxony in September.
