'Our aim is not regime change' - Conflict Zone

Since the war in Ukraine began, Germany’s controversial links to Russia have been in the spotlight. Has Germany learned from the big mistakes of the past? And can there be normalization between Europe and Russia while Vladimir Putin remains in power?

In this week’s Conflict Zone, host Tim Sebastian talks to Ralf Stegner, a member of the German Parliament for the Social Democrats.
"We cannot talk about lifting any sanctions or coming back to economic normality before this war stops and Putin puts his troops back, there's no doubt about this," Stegner said.

Conflict Zone is Deutsche Welle's top political interview. Every week, our hosts Tim Sebastian and Sarah Kelly are face to face with global decision-makers, seeking straight answers to straight questions, putting the spotlight on controversial issues and calling the powerful to account.
