Trigema boss Wolfgang Grupp has repeatedly spoken out against arms deliveries to Ukraine.
Now he expressed his demands again in a YouTube interview.
Burladingen - Wolfgang Grupp's negative stance on arms deliveries to Ukraine is well known.
Nevertheless, a current interview by the Trigema boss is causing a stir, as reported by BW24.
On the YouTube channel of Dominik Kettner, a gold dealer from Villingen-Schwenningen, Grupp commented on the war, politics and the country's economic situation.
"It is unacceptable that citizens have to freeze so that we can deliver more and more weapons to Ukraine," the company patriarch sometimes said in an interview.
"One has to have reason somewhere."
According to Grupp, the war must end "as soon as possible".
“We have to see: what can we do?
We have to have a conversation.” With his opinion of stopping the arms deliveries, he was “against the mainstream”.
"If you say something against the mainstream - if you say something like
listen - you're not allowed to say anything that speaks against the war.
You have to do everything you can to get people to say the war is justified.
I disagree and I'll say it!” By investing €20 billion in Nord Stream 1 and 2 and not using the second pipeline now, billions are wasted.
"Something must have happened and it should have been prevented in time.
You can't be friends with Mr. Putin for 20 years and then suddenly be a mortal enemy - that doesn't exist."
Wolfgang Grupp: "Do politicians need eight years to see Putin's true colors?"
"When you say that Putin has shown his true face with the Ukraine takeover - then I ask myself: do the politicians need eight years until they see the true face?
I mean, then decisions should have been made in 2014.
We could have said we are making ourselves less dependent on gas - all of that has been missed.
And I can't explain that and I don't understand it.” The war must now be ended as quickly as possible.

According to Grupp, he was not aware that Kettner had also let conspiracy theorists like Daniele Ganser have their say on his channel in the past.
As the Trigema boss explained to the
, he does not consider Kettner to be a lateral thinker.
His employees had checked the channel in advance and advised him to do the interview.
After the conversation with him, Kettner probably interviewed two lateral thinkers.
