Brussels is putting pressure on former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder (SPD).  A broad coalition in the European Parliament wants to put the chairman of supervisory board of Rosneft on the EU sanctions list.  In the upcoming vote, the measure is considered safe by the vast majority.

Members of the European Parliament want to call on 27 member states to add former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder (SPD) to an EU sanctions list that already includes many Russian oligarchs.  The draft resolution said, after some Western politicians resigned from their positions at Russian companies, they “strongly demand that others like Karin Kneissl and Gerhard Schroeder do the same.”

Kneissl is an Austrian independent politician who has been a member of the supervisory board of Rosneft which is Russia’s state-owned oil company since last year.  Schroeder is the chairman of the supervisory board there.

The draft is a real signal from Europe.  If Schroeder and Kneissl stay on their position, MEPs called on the EU Council to “expand the list of people affected by EU sanctions, including European board members and politicians of major Russian companies that continue to receive Russian money.”  So far, both Schroeder and Knisely have rejected to resign the post and waive the associated pay.

In a note, the former German Chancellor worked in a Russian state-owned company.  So far, he is still refusing to give up this position, and can’t see through Putin’s face.  Now the retribution is coming and he will be added in the sanctioned list.  If this decision is put into action, the reputation of the former German Chancellor will nosedive in his lifetime, and won’t be respected again.
