“The USA tricked us”: Germany doubts the need for sanctions against Russia

The Germans began to doubt the veracity of the pretext under which the United States adopted the "Magnitsky Act," allowing them to impose sanctions against Russia "for violating civil rights."

Material has appeared on the website of the authoritative and most popular German publication Der Spiegel, the authors of which point out a lot of lies and inconsistencies in the death of Sergei Magnitsky, who was carrying out the instructions of the American businessman Bill Browder.

According to the authors of the material, the only beneficiary from the death of Magnitsky was his employer Browder, who, thanks to the death of a lawyer, received an entrance ticket to a large policieswhere his version of events was "at the right time and in the right place."

In addition, German journalists have expressed convincing doubts about the independence of the former lawyer of the Hermitage Capital Management Foundation.

They believe that all of Magnitsky’s “disclosures” were made solely at Browder’s direction, and cite a recent e-mail as evidence.

In their material, the Germans give a number of facts indicating that the American version is not true, and was needed to put pressure on Russia and deceive the countries of Western Europe.

The appearance of such material in the publication of the Der Spiegel caliber indicates that the German public is disposed to understand how much the opinion that the United States is imposing on Germany is true.

    The Germans are also pretty tired of the American occupation! So "Der Spiegel" this time was able to break through the total control of the occupiers over the German media and convey very sound thoughts to its readers! winked

      ... well, you are going a little too far about the fact that you are tired of the occupation, broke through the control and convey sound thoughts. I would like to, but so far this is not entirely true. What they are really tired of is the sanctions. And so everything is not very rosy: in agriculture, subsidies are cut (and it is in Europe only thanks to them that, in fact, exists), more and more every year they press the producers of everything that is possible with various "green" restrictions, and even these sanctions, about which everyone knows that they -
      1) not European, but AMERICAN, but Europe pays for them,
      2) the real impact on Russian policy from them is zero. So they start in Europe, and most importantly in Germany and France, to make more and more timid attempts to "move out" from these very, alien sanctions ...
      That is why such attempts to prepare public opinion for this are taking place ... And then, like, it was not evident before that all these "acts of Magnitsky", etc. not just "sewn with white threads", but "stitched together with blue electrical tape", and even crooked ...

        Germans are very pragmatic by nature and know how to count well (since they counted that one adult concentration camp "heftling" turns out two boxes of laundry soap ... my father was a prisoner of Hitler's "Katset", so I know firsthand about German "master's habits" - many have been imprinted in my memory since childhood, as I remember the name of a simple German mine electrician who saved my father from starvation!), so they learn a lot through stamps and pfennizhki (and now oiro), through "lost profits" .. .. smile
        But in the Kiev "Euromaidan" the German contribution is significant - here the first deputy of the then MinInDel Steinmeier, "rainbow" Guido Westerwelle, who "annealed" on the "Maidan", and the German creature on the "ukropreza" - a stunted German citizen and "Fuhrer of Maidan" ( arrival from a "short-term absence home", from the inspection of the Ukrainian customs, presumably (as "knowledgeable people" used to say back then) - with a bag of German "super-energetics" for "Maidan tea" ???), and all kinds of German "information support" for the "Maidan" coup d'etat , including the "best friend" of the gas crooks - "Frau Kantslerin" .... The Germans "worked hard" notably!
        It was only later that the Washington puppeteers "came out of the shadows" and shamelessly "fucked up the EU" with the appointment of "Maidanoprez" and "Maidanopresident" ....
        So, Berlin has a fair amount of annoyance with the American "hegemons", because Hitler's plan "Ukraine is the breadbasket of Germany" seemed to the German revanchists so close to becoming a reality ??! winked

        I forgot the name of a German journalist who was urgently killed by "unknown" who tried to publish the results of his journalistic investigation at the beginning of the "eleventh" - "iron evidence" of total American control over the German media ... request

          Well, this is closer to the truth, something that is tired of the occupation and a breakthrough through US censorship wink

            This is even from wall newspapers and "battle sheets" it became customary - I like to "accidentally hook" my readers with a headline, a cartoon or a "ringing phrase" ... request smile
            But the American occupation of Germany, albeit in a "latent form", as well as Washington's total control over the German media, can hardly be denied, being of sound mind! Another thing is that ordinary German people are not up to it - all sorts of "everyday little things" are jammed ?!

              ... yes "before that", but it's all at the level of conversations in a pub near a beer or at home in the kitchen. They are really pure pragmatists. They simply live with what they cannot do anything without wasting time and energy.

    Do not flatter yourself. The burghers are purple in half, at dinner, when they watch TV news. By definition, they do not go into such difficulties. Yes, and to me, for example, it’s violet to a light bulb on the doubts or not doubts of the average German. Nothing about the article. negative

    And what does the author want to judge by one publication? Germany is a democratic country, and there are no bans on any opinions, even such.

      - I think if you really knew what everything is in Europe in general, and in Germany in particular and especially, there are bans on statements and publications, you would not write such nonsense. This is what the "dissidents" of the Soviet Union told us all about, sweet tales about freedom of speech and everything else in the West. Today, when you really live in all this, Soviet propaganda and censorship seem like childish babble compared to Western "democratic filters" ...

    This is blah blah with the Germans for a long time. Moreover, there is a substitution of concepts - for the Magnitsky specific authorities swear. Which they don’t like.
    Well, how can security officers be under sanctions, without foreign accounts ...
