Why did the protesters in Berlin chanted “Putin! Putin! "


On August 29, 2020, in Berlin, a rally of thousands of Covid dissidents took place, protesting against the tightening of quarantine restrictions planned by the federal government. The capital of Germany has not seen such a mass demonstration for fifteen years.


Tens of thousands of Germans took to the streets of the capital, holding various banners, posters and flags. The video clearly shows the flags of Germany, Russia, the United States, the LGBT community, the European Union, various other countries, organizations and parties. But most of all were the flags of the German Empire, they prevailed.

The protesters wanted the country's authorities to finally hear them. Therefore, at some point, they even decided to go to storm the Bundestag, the German parliament. The police had to use tear gas and special equipment, detaining about 300 people. Before that, the Berlin Administrative Court banned the demonstration. According to law enforcement officers, more than 38 thousand people took part in the protest action.



Russian journalist Dmitry Smirnov was in the thick of the action. He started asking various questions to the people around him. For example, why are they holding Russian tricolors in their hands and chanting “Putin! Putin! "

I asked why are they with Russian flags? It's simple: because Putin can put pressure on Trump

- the journalist said the words of the protesters.

At the same time, it is not specified why Russian leader Vladimir Putin should put pressure on his American counterpart Donald Trump. However, the shouts of "the government to resign" were well heard.

Note that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is one of the supporters of the completion of the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline and its commissioning. Therefore, the above action may be provocative and aimed at complicating relations between Moscow and Berlin.

    Most likely it is. The government, despite the pressure from the United States, did not abandon the gas pipeline, and even forced the Americans to withdraw part of the troops. Therefore, this is such a subtle allusion to the "Maidan".

    They have already been labeled as "covid dissidents." I don’t remember talking about "furgalo-dissidents" in Khabarovsk. winked

    Tens of thousands of Germans took to the streets of the capital, holding various banners, posters and flags. The video clearly shows the flags of Germany, Russia, the United States, the LGBT community, the European Union, various other countries, organizations and parties. But most of all were the flags of the German Empire, they prevailed.

    There were really a lot of flags there, both good and different, and bad too. The composition is very variegated, each creature has a pair. But I would like to dwell on the flags of the "German Empire" in more detail. As far as I understand, these people do not recognize the occupation constitution adopted after the war and imposed by the Americans. And since these flags "prevailed," the conclusion suggests itself, the people are tired of living under American occupation and want a new Constitution, not written under the dictation of "Uncle Sam." I do not exclude that they would not mind direct elections either. So far, according to the procedure established by the Americans, the chancellor is elected by the deputies, not the people. In general, the coronavirus is only a pretext, the label of "covid dissidents" is clearly inappropriate.

    Before that, the Berlin Administrative Court banned the demonstration

    Are you sure? In my opinion, the court allowed the rally to be held, lifting the ban imposed by the Berlin authorities. People were very dissatisfied with him, "brought down" the system, submitting simultaneously thousands of applications for single pickets.

    At the same time, it is not specified why Russian leader Vladimir Putin should put pressure on his American counterpart Donald Trump. However, the shouts of "the government to resign" were well heard.

    And what is there to clarify? Merkel is not able to oppose anything to Trump's dictatorship, and they turn to whoever can. laughing

    Note that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is one of the supporters of the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and its commissioning.

    Let me also remind you that Merkel, the initiator of the sanctions imposed on Russia, supported the coup in Ukraine, supports any undertakings of the Ukrainian governments, does not notice the antics of the Ukronazis at close range, actually covering them up. I wonder if she will invite to the Charité the Ukrainian oppositionists beaten up by the National Corps the other day?
    If this is a provocation against Nord Stream, why shouldn't Merkel stop playing around and just finish building it and launch it? There will be no reasons for provocations.

    Therefore, the above action may be provocative and aimed at complicating relations between Moscow and Berlin.

    Well, of course. laughing We must all as one stand up for Frau Merkel. laughing
    In my opinion, all progressive humanity should demand:
    1) Immediately stop police brutality (watched with interest as the peasant was led behind a column, pierced his liver, poked his nose into concrete, and kicked off the steps of the Reichstag indiscriminately men and women who shouted in the language of the hegemon that they were "the press").
    2) Offer mediation assistance in establishing a dialogue between the authorities and the protesters (Lukashenka is quite suitable for this purpose).
    3) Carry out a constitutional reform in the country, the demands of the people must be heard.
    Well, it's time to impose sanctions against the German authorities.

    Obviously, the population is tired of being vassals of Washington.
    The Germans want real German sovereignty and friendship with Russia, to lift all sanctions against the Russians.
