A Russian Plot to Build an Antiwar Coalition in Germany?

May 1, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Germany’s far-left Die Linke and the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) could not be further apart on the political spectrum. But, they share some common ground: For months, figures in both parties have been described as Russlandversteher who are sympathetic to Moscow. At demonstrations across Germany, these political opposites have come together under the banner of peace in their opposition to providing heavy weapons to Ukraine. According to sensitive Russian documents obtained by European intelligence services and reviewed by The Washington Post, it is a goal of the Kremlin to build an antiwar coalition in Germany by uniting these political extremes.

Join the ACG for a virtual discussion about Moscow’s efforts to bring Die Linke and the AfD together with Washington Post reporter Catherine Belton.

Catherine Belton reports on Russia for The Washington Post. She is the author of “Putin’s People,” a New York Times Critics’ Book of 2020 and a book of the year for the Times, the Economist, and the Financial Times. Ms. Belton previously was an investigations correspondent for Reuters and a Moscow correspondent for the Financial Times.
