Jörg Urban, MP in the Saxonian parliament for the German sovereignist party “Alternative für Deutschland” (AfD) calls for immediate lifting of anti-Russian sanctions. These sanctions are “arbitrary and useless”, said Urban. The MP accused the German mainstream parties CDU, SPD and Greens to harm with their sanctions policy towards Russia the Saxonian agribusiness. Urban demanded a “rational foreign politics” from the German government. Berlin should eventually recognize the Crimean referendum of March 2014 and the unification of the peninsula with Russia.
