This blow from the USA has caused a great deal of excitement in Berne: Switzerland is said to be “Putin’s assistant”. This is how the so-called Helsinki Commission, an independent body of US parliamentarians, presented it at a meeting in early May. One of the loudest critics of Switzerland was Roger Wicker (70), Republican US Senator for the state of Mississippi.

Now, of all people, Wicker is part of the US delegation attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Blick asked him about his Switzerland scolding in the congress center. “It was clear that this question would come up when I was here.” He only has a short time, says Wicker – but then he gets into a chatting mood: “The points of view expressed in the hearing were well received. Swiss Ambassador Jacques Pitteloud came to see me and we had a very nice chat on subjects we agree on.”
