German media: Russia is weakening, it is time to offer her a “carrot”


Russia threatens Europe on many fronts: hacker attacks, mercenaries in Libya, the bombing of Syria. And this cannot go unpunished. But, according to the expert of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, in relation to the Russian Federation it is necessary to apply both a stick and a carrot.


Angela Merkel spoke on Wednesday about a hacker attack from Russia on the Bundestag in 2015, calling it an “outrageous” act. But is it as outrageous as interfering in the US election campaign and Salisbury neurotoxin poisoning?

Hacker attack is part of Russia's strategy, one of the small elements in the mosaic of its external policy. Since Putin came to power, the Russian Federation has been aggressive: if Ukraine plans to "go" to the West, it will be divided; while crowds of refugees from Libya and Syria are terrorizing Europe, Moscow sends mercenaries to these regions to foment an even bigger war; to intimidate Europeans, the Russian authorities deployed nuclear weapons in the European part of the country, and they shoot their opponents in Berlin Tiergarten. And the West can do little about it, and sanctions do not bring the desired result.

- writes the edition.

Russia is currently weakening. In the country, the coronavirus rampant, because of cheap oil, the budget of the Russian Federation lacks funds. Western countries have come to change their strategy for their eastern neighbor.

Why not offer Russia not only a whip, but also a carrot in the form of investments, asks the FAZ question. If money flows to Moscow, as well as to other countries, it will be possible to achieve progress in relations with the Russian Federation, because it is in the interests of Germany and the EU.

    ... Why not offer Russia not only a whip, but also a carrot in the form of investments, asks the FAZ question. If money flows to Moscow, as well as to other countries, it will be possible to achieve progress in relations with the Russian Federation, because it is in the interests of Germany and the EU ...

    It took the Germans twenty years to understand and agree with what Putin was offering when he spoke in the Bundestag in September 2001.
    He talked about normalization and even alliance with Europe. He did not want Russia to become part of the West, but he would like her to become also the architect of a common European home. But the arrogant swagger of the Westerners missed this excellent opportunity, and instead adopted (continued) the pro-American policy of “containing Russia”.
    The apogee of this confrontation, senseless for everyone, was the action of the annexation of Ukraine from the CIS, with an attempt to integrate it first into the economic, and later into the geopolitical system of the EU.
    Russia's reaction to this was quite adequate and predictable. So all that the newspaper listed a la -

    ... if Ukraine plans to "go" to the West, it will be divided; while crowds of refugees from Libya and Syria are terrorizing Europe, Moscow is sending mercenaries to these regions to foment an even bigger war; To intimidate Europeans, the Russian authorities deploy nuclear weapons in the European part of the country, and they shoot their opponents in Berlin Tiergarten ..

    - there is nothing more than the result of a short-sighted and arrogant Western policy.

      Russia is currently weakening. Coronavirus rampant in country due to cheap oil the budget of the Russian Federation lacks funds. Western countries have come to change their strategy for their eastern neighbor.
      Why not offer Russia not only a whip, but also "carrot" in the form of INVESTMENTS, wonders the FAZ. If money flows to Moscow, as well as to other countries, it will be possible to achieve progress in relations with the Russian Federation, because it is in the interests of Germany and the EU.

      In other words, German newspaper men offer to get back to Soros’s strategy with his “gingerbread” INVESTMENTS from the countries of the “Washington Regional Committee” in relation to the Russian Federation from the time of 1989 - the beginning of the 1990s.

      Soros is a financial speculator of the highest guild. Yes, people like him, now quietly seem to be sitting in the shade, are not exposed especially to the public, but they know their business well.

      Of all the parasites in the capitalist world, the most parasitic are the so-called INVESTORS, like Soros, who act on the principle of investing money under a usurious interest dictated from above or under certain conditions for the purchase of enterprises, land, mineral resources, etc. wealth.
      And the current situation in the world is really “BENEFIS” and accelerated excitement for such “owners of money” as Soros and Co. with his “chubbyats” in our country.

    - What "carrot" can the elderly Merkel offer Russia today ??? - Yes, Germany itself needs a gingerbread today ...
    - And the carrot already exists ... - this is SP-2 ... and cheap Russian gas ... (any - pipeline and LNG - including) ... - And Germany itself has been trying to bite off this for a long time already. " gingerbread "as large a piece as possible ... - And Russia in this goes to meet her ...
    - So it’s not Germany today to talk about the distribution of Russian gingerbread ... - Germany has long been widely spreading its mouth into Russian gingerbread itself and has prepared sharp teeth ...
    - And then she (Germany) was going to give out “gingerbreads” to Russia ... - Well, you have to ...

    Surprisingly, for some reason, in Russia this new Reich is beyond discussion. We have a taboo in the media - there is no criticism about Germany. Does the Chancellor require “returning the exported values” or “we don’t want to see the Russians as part of the EADS shareholders”, or the ultimatum “if you take Mariupol ...” or the Americans’s incitement to Serbia, or “applause in the Bundestag for this Kolya from Urengoy”. Well, the project "Ukraine" is primarily a German project. The fourth Reich took place and is again directed against us, we must draw conclusions ...
    You need to understand that the goals of Germany are different from the goals of the United States (Anglo-Saxons in general). Germany used the US as fools while it was possible.
    Germany does not represent any alliance or even equal coexistence with Russia. Not part of their plans. All our nonsense type axis Berlin - Moscow - Beijing - an absolute chimera.
    I tried to make normal people out of the inhabitants of the GDR of the USSR, and it almost worked out. But in general, the general mood, which they, of course, try not to openly show - revenge and revenge. My good friend, a German professor, Slavic professor, was in great stress in 1999 and, in his opinion, the whole company against Serbia is an act of revenge for the Third Reich. Ultimately, the goal is Russia.
    All our so-called cooperation with them is a project that works according to their rules and in their interests. For example, it was Germany that stopped the South Stream, and not US congressmen at all, as we commonly assume. When they twisted the arms of Bulgaria, they allowed us to build flows in the Baltic, which, in fact, Germany now controls. This economic interaction cannot be changed. It can only be torn. Even with an understanding of serious losses. But there is not much time left.
    Now, this or next year, they will try to rock the situation inside Russia.

      ... they will try to rock the situation inside Russia.

      Everything you wrote is true, but far from so gloomy.)
      Nobody will "rock inside Russia" now. Europe today has infinitely many of its problems. And Germany inside this Europe has very big problems. This alone is worth it:

      https://ria.ru/20200520/1571690117.html

      The Germans are losing control of the situation in Europe. The Germans urgently need to regain their leadership, and they frantically try to earn political authority within Europe again. Hence, apparently, these “movements” towards Russia.

    Germany is an unreliable partner. You can’t trust her. Whenever Russia treated her kindly, she bit Russia. These are the same Poles, only more sophisticated. Germany must always oppose France. Those, too, are still partners, but in their hearts they hate the Germans, as, incidentally, the Poles ...
    If "Europe" sees that Russia is decisively turning to the East, it will come running with its stale gingerbread, without any persuasion, and will look into its eyes and wag its tail. Only for this, Russia needs to take an example from China and begin the development of its own industry, both light and medium ...

    I did not understand what this passage was about.

    ... and they’ll shoot their opponents in the Berlin Tiergarten.

    - Is it about being killed by accomplices, atrocious "Syrian refugees" or provocateurs from the Western special services, a German citizen, an exile-criminal from the USSR, Russia (by the same principle of sweeping pulling by ears, as the British Skripaly pulled ???) ?? wassat

    Regarding the GHARISH, UNprovoked (as well as allegedly "interference in the US election campaign and poisoning with Salotbury neurotoxins!"), "Hacker attack from Russia on the Bundestag in 2015" - I’m not sure that such a hacker attack, if any, it was hardly from Russia!
    And here is the REAL total LISTENING to US special services (not just a one-off “attack”, but LASTING YEARS-ALL-HOUR !!!) mobile phone, ALL TALKS, the very “Frau CHANCELLER MERKEL (and the key“ Bundesminutendernedndnd) ?! finally, it was revealed by the German secret services either in 2014 or in the same 2015 and became the reason (almost behind the scenes — a sort of Amerokholopskaya “storm in a glass” to the blatant arbitrariness of his Washington gentleman!), an international scandal!

    But Angela (through her spokesperson) briefly indignantly murmured and quickly “halte maul” (she shut her mouth, as in the case of the impudent statement “fak EU” by US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nudelman-Nuland in 2014 to Germany’s frank appetites when appointing the “Maidan authorities” “in Ukraine!)”, having replaced the cellphone being tapped for a special “chancellor encrypted”, with the hope that the Americans would not “hear” this ...
    But the journalist of the Frankfurt Universal Newspaper did not say a word or word about this glaring "undemocratic" fact of American total surveillance of the German top leaders - after all, the owner’s instruction was "to suck any utter garbage from anywhere," but to bury Russia, and not own "cartridges" ??! winked

    About how Germany, through "the best friend of the Ukrainian gas Julia" - chancellor Angela Merkel and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, then headed by current president Steinmeier, in the person of his then deputy - Gnido Westerwelle, "pressed" on the dill of Yanukovych to, contrary to the constitutional norm about the “qualification of settledness”, voluntarily changing it, allowed the deserted German boxer athlete Pidalke to run as a candidate for dill in the upcoming elections of 2015, as German politicians (and special services? winked) actively participated in supporting and promoting the “Euro-Maid” coup in Kiev - this is a different story (and the President of Russia, from his special services officers, should have known quite a lot about this ?!).
    Therefore, the Germans would not need "about Ukraine" speak - in Ukraine, people still remember and remember well these German "guides" negative constantly performing on the stage of the satanic "Euromaidan" in Kiev, and from where, in every possible way bypassing the Ukrainian customs, they "fed" skakuas-maydauns "with tea stimulants (modern analogues of Hitler's favorite drug -" pervitin " the roof has completely "moved down" !, the main component of "panzerchokolada" and other "invigorating food additives") "!

    The Germans still have not guessed who “slipped the pig” with the so-called “refugees from Syria and Libya (but among them there are no Syrians and Libyans at all!”) ??! winked
    Those who for years ( even before the appearance of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria !!!) allegedly "bombed and fought ISIS", but actually fueled civil wars in the Middle East, produced and armed terrorists who destroy (along with NATO bombings!) civilians and legitimate authorities in these countries in order to "pocket" natural resources , oil and gas of these countries - the United States of America, Great Britain, Turkey and their other NATO allies!

    I completely agree that

    Western countries have come to change their strategy for their eastern neighbor.

    Western countries (and, above all, Germany - the EU leader!) Urgently need to stop this militant "Drang nah Osten", reject their anti-Russian-Russophobic Cold War stereotypes and flawed "sanctions", largely imposed on Europe by overseas "hegemons"!
    The authorities of these countries should objectively understand the situation and begin a constructive dialogue with Russia on mutually beneficial fruitful cooperation and reducing the "degree of confrontation", which is "heated" precisely from the West, and not from Russia!

      ... first of all, Germany - the EU leader!) It is urgent to stop this militant "Drang nah Osten", to reject its anti-Russian-Russophobic stereotypes of the Cold War and flawed "sanctions" ..

      .. The well-known German journalist Jacob Augstein touched on the pages of Spiegel on a topic that has been tabooed for a long time in Western and then united Germany: does the country have genuine sovereignty, how independent is it in the international arena? The conclusion was disappointing: Augstein states that today's Germany is completely independent in foreign policy and, in most cases, is subordinate to the US dictatorship ...

    From Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung it is clear that Westerners want the destruction of Russia. They use a lie to build Russophobia. Nevertheless, one way or another, they strengthen the position of Tsar Putin and the Russian oligarchs.

    A hacker attack from the territory of Russia is possible only in one case, if at the same time 20 Bandera guest workers gathered in a rented apartment, and they are financed from the same cash office with Navalny and Co. As long as there is no strict control over any movements of the Ukrainian people on the territory of Russia, such provocations will continue indefinitely. In this case, ukrov chipping must be done compulsorily, when they cross the Russian border.
    PS Chipping should be fixed with a barcode on the forehead so that everyone sees who they are dealing with.

    Modern European politicians are reminiscent of a hysterical housewife, who herself came up with (hacker attacks, mercenaries in Libya, the bombing of Syria and much more) and she was frightened herself .... Now they come up with what to do with this. But initially everything is built on the wrong "foundation".

    I read it. Everything turns out to be so sad and sad crying there’s just such an IMF organization, apparently they don’t read the German press, they took it and published new data. So, according to their data, Russia took 5th place in terms of GDP (PPP), Germany moved to sixth. belay Here is such a small, quiet, inconspicuous event.
    And now how to live with this knowledge? what And we don’t have the means, and weaken, and worse and worse, but in Germany, apparently, everything is wonderful, but the numbers are damned, what should we do with them? The balance does not converge. request
