The controversial foundation climate and environmental protection MV has difficulties to find interested parties for a cooperation. A legal opinion for the foundation listed “partners” who had expressed “hope for further cooperation”. Upon request and according to the “Spiegel”, however, several of these supposed partners distanced themselves.

The city of Torgelow writes that a joint project has been “cancelled”. Stralsund reports that although a “fundamental request” was made, no cooperation was ultimately started. The district of Rostock explains something similar. The state energy and climate protection agency says, contrary to what the foundation claims, a joint conference is not planned.

The foundation, endowed with millions from Moscow, is a symbol of the failed Russia policy of Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD). The disreputable construct labeled climate protection was obviously devised to circumvent US sanctions on the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The government and state parliament want to dissolve the foundation.
