Sahra Wagenknecht is a leftist politician in Germany, a member of the Bundestag for The Left party. Sahra Wagenknecht grew up in East Germany and became a leading member of its most radical wing – the Communist Platform.

In 2017, a German leftist politician, Sahra Wagenknecht, advocated for Germany to leave NATO and set up a new alliance, including Russia. Wagenknecht is the central figure of leaked Russian documents that show the Kremlin’s efforts to create in Germany a so-called anti-war coalition among far-left and far-right parties to stop support for Ukraine.

The documents published in the Washington Post show that Russia fuels pseudo-pacifist movements in Europe to achieve its political goals. Sahra Wagenknecht condemned the bloodshed in Ukraine without mentioning Russia’s invasion.

Sahra Wagenknecht called on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to oppose support for Ukraine and against the supply of German tanks. Sahra Wagenknecht’s stance benefits Moscow since Russian troops will seize more territories if Ukraine lacks weapons.

Sahra Wagenknecht’s collaboration with the far-right AfD party raised concern as their joint participation in pro-Russia rallies undermines Europe’s unity vs. authoritarian regimes, including the Kremlin.

Alternative for Germany (AfD) party remains the most useful for the Kremlin: they have 28 seats in the European Parliament, together with other Kremlin-affiliated French National Rally parties, and their MEPs often vote clearly “against” anti-Russian resolutions. AfD members have been offered all-expenses-paid trips to Russia.

Sahra co-authored the “Manifesto for Peace” petition that appeared on the Change.org platform in 2023. More than 748,000 people have signed the petition. The authors of the appeal are Germans, Alice Schwarzer and Sahra Wagenknecht.

Under the cover of “peace,” “achieving compromises on both sides,” Alice Schwarzer and Sahra Wagenknecht promote traditional Russian propaganda storylines.

The manifesto begins with the usual rationale for any crime: associating the victim with the guilty. First, they highlight military and civilian losses on both sides of the conflict but don’t say who is to blame for this suffering. “Women were raped, children were intimidated, and the entire nation was traumatised,” the writers write, although they do not say who became the Ukrainian people’s executioner.

The petition does not explicitly criticise Russian aggression, nor does it call for restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity or punishing war criminals. The most challenging concept for the reader is “war is bad, and peace is good.”

In 2023, she helped organise a rally in Berlin against the delivery of weapons to Ukraine.
