First, member of the Bundestag Sören Pellmann (Die Linke) invited the former leader of the party, Sahra Wagenknecht, to speak at a Monday demonstration of the left. Then the politician was suddenly unloaded again. Why is unclear. In an SMS to a Linke distributor, however, Wagenknecht expressed the suspicion that Thuringia’s Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow could have something to do with it. That reports ” World “.

“It’s the second time that Ramelow has referred to Klaus and me as Putin propagandists and in the same breath as Höcke. My unloading for 5.9 fits in with this. in Leipzig under pressure from the KL House. Of course you can accept all this without objection. You can’t complain if at least I don’t want to have anything to do with this store anymore,” the message said.

The left rejected this representation in relation to the “mirror”. Ramelow also announced that he knew nothing about the SMS in question.

Wagenknecht is considered a controversial personality in her party, whose opinions often deviate from party positions. She criticizes the sanctions against Russia and advocates opening the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline. In addition to other left-wing politicians, Ramelow also counted the former parliamentary group leader for her pro-Russian statements.
