The court found that the Russian state had ordered the killing of its political opponent in Central Europe. The daily Die Welt wrote Wednesday that in response to the Tiergarten murder, Germany must toughen its course toward Russia, as it is not enough to expel two of that country’s diplomats.
The newspaper mentions two cases from Great Britain: “In 2006, Alexander Litvinenko killed a former FSB employee with radioactive polonium. In March 2018, Russian agents smeared a rare Novichok agent with the door handle of an ex-spy Sergei Skripal . He himself survived, a stranger died. For the Russian authorities under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, Litvinenko and Skripal were traitors. ”

The situation worsened and “the regime today deals with political opponents as never before, at the same time massing hundreds of thousands of soldiers on the border with Ukraine. The danger of a new war in Ukraine is real, ”as the daily estimates.
Germany and Europe “must admit to themselves that their behavior towards Russia It does not work. The expulsion of two Russian diplomats in retaliation for the murder of Tiergarten is nothing more than a gesture. Politics must hit Russian rulers where it hurts: In their pockets, wrote Alexig Hoek, commentary author for Die Welt.
Hook says we could adopt tougher, targeted sanctions against people around Putin, freeze their accounts, and cut off the flow of money to Europe. – Because only when regime supporters realize that Moscow’s actions are doing them more harm than good will they increase pressure on Putin – or move away from him – says the author.

The daily Tagesspiegel wrote in a commentary: “The Berlin Court of Appeal confirmed what the Federal Prosecutor’s Office had previously assumed – that the Russian state was behind the murder on behalf of the country. In this way, the ruling eventually becomes a heavy burden on German-Russian relations and a problem for the new federal government.” .
– This time it is not enough to expel only two diplomats (…) and then act as usual – according to Tagesspiegel estimates.
– This case shows how aggressive the country we are dealing with is. This should be a lesson for those in Germany who believe that further dialogue will somehow mend the broken relationship with Russia. Attacks on opponents of the Kremlin in several countries, attempts to interfere in elections in Western democracies and Moscow’s war against Ukraine They speak for themselves – confirms “Tagspiegel”.
