    It must have been sometime in February of this year when Christian Blex decided to make foreign policy now too. Blex is actually a grammar school teacher for maths and physics. Since last year he sits for AfD in Landtag of North Rhine-Westphalia. It was at least matically suited to his subjects that he was considered an energy politician in party. Blex doubts that climate change is at all affected by human beings, and that environmental protection does not hold anything. But subject did not seem to be enough.

    As a participant of a AfD delegation, Blex travelled from 3rd to 9th of February via Moscow to Crimea occupied by Russia. Now, not even four weeks later, he's on his way again. On Monday of this week he sent a message to president of his Landtag: "Under direction of Dr. Christian Blex, MDL NRW, members of German Bundestag and Landtag NRW will visit Syria privately from 5 March onwards", it said. Already in evening Blex stood in Damascus. Toger with six or AfD politicians, he had travelled through Lebanese border crossing Masnaa in Syria and n drove to capital.

    What could now become a problem for Blex: as private as he had announced to president of Landtag, this exhilarating journey is not. This is evidenced, among or things, of media reports and photos and information that Blex himself published on his journey: Blex in Damascus next to a minister of power of Bashar al-Assad, Blex with Grand Mufti. This looks like a very political journey.

    The photos from Syria posted Blex about his Twitter account, which he had not used before trip. In his profile, a kind of sender recognition, he is a "member of AfD NRW in ltnrw".

    With his behaviour, Blex could violate an announcement by his Landtag president André Kuper. For he had, on day of his departure, Blex a letter and demanded "to refrain from making any appearances for a committee, Landtag or state of North Rhine-Westphalia". The writing is time online. According to Members ' law, Blex is allowed to present himself as a member of Landtag, but Kuper furr warned that " foreign policy of Federal Republic of Germany is not a matter for individual members of Landtag of North Rhine-Westphalia". In or words, Christian Blex is not on a business trip to Syria, and he must not make that appearance.

    In reality, however, that happens. Since Blex is a member, he is also perceived as a state guest. Especially Russian media, which broadcast internationally, use his journey to legitimize Kremlin-supported Assad. The completely unknown politician Blex in Germany is mentioned in numerous articles as a source for a supposedly weighty political stance in Germany. For example, Kremlin-influenced portal RT writes: "Syrian refugees can come home. Source: The German MEP Christian Blex, who met Grand Mufti Ahmed Hassun in Syria. " Many German and or international media also reported on Blexs trips to Crimea and to Middle East as a member.
