German media at a loss: the Russian point of view is more and more popular in Europe

In the European External Action Service (EAD), even after the return of Crimea to Russia, a “strategic communication” unit appeared, analysts of which monitor “disinformation campaigns” from Russia. According to some EAD findings, Moscow's view of the protests in Belarus, the poisoning of Navalny and other international events is increasingly popular in Europe, writes the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.

Russian media, broadcasting to European countries, declare that the Kremlin is not involved in the poisoning of the oppositionist. Numerous articles and notes point out that Moscow, in pursuit of the goal of removing Navalny, would not have acted so unprofessionally - instead of "Novichok", one could use a knife, a pistol, or stage a car accident.

Another allegation is that the West and the United States are behind the attack on one of the leaders of the Russian non-systemic opposition, whose goal is to harm Russia and stop the construction of Nord Stream 2.

Russian media unveil a conspiracy theory that Western intelligence agencies were behind the attack on Navalny, wishing to harm Moscow-Berlin relations

- writes the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

In the case of the Belarusian events, Russia is trying to present the peaceful protest movement as inspired by the West. According to EAD, the Russian TV channel RT plays the main role in Belarus.

In the Federal Republic of Germany, where Navalny's poisoning caused fermentation in the minds of the public, the influence of the Russian media is also great. So, RT materials in German are very interesting to the local audience and in terms of the number of reposts they came out on top in Germany - this reflects the popularity of the Russian view of what is happening in the world

- the German newspaper notes in confusion.

    Why does Russia need Navalny's body, because here (in Russia) he is a "political corpse" and the European Parliament is actively working in this direction, i.e. helps

    Navalny must not be allowed back to Russia. To deprive him of his citizenship and let him go home.

      Come on! Let him come (and most likely this will happen - he will rush in because he understands that the West needs him NOW as a corpse ... and in the Russian Federation he will not be safe either - Nemtsov's example is still fresh in everyone's mind!). For the RF, it is "useful".

        I also think that let him sit there. He was used against his own country, and he seems to have nothing against. They understood that it is better to make a "sacrificial sheep" out of him, because he is not in any other capacity.

    We spent 50 million euros to support peaceful protests.

    We do not interfere in Belarusian affairs

    Two messages in the German media with a difference per day.
    I wonder if the EU spent 50 million euros to support one of the candidates for American presidency, would they also make innocent eyes the next day? Before the special trooper at Guantanamo ...

      Although I gave you a +, but these "haves" do not make the weather in general in Germany.

    It was much easier to remove Navalny, without the use of poisons, accidents and other crap. He is a diabetic. Inject more insulin and that's it. None of the expertise will prove malicious intent. A person did not calculate the dosage. Just an example. There is a bunch of completely legal medicines, inept handling. with whom he will kill more reliably than any combat OV. Well, the special forces do not work as carelessly as with Skripals or with Navalny. Even bandits work more elegantly.

    -Yes .., maybe great ... -But even this ... is not the point ...
    - It's just that many Germans themselves can imagine this "bulk" simply as having arrived in Germany for treatment ... - But you never know they bring people from Russia to Germany for treatment ... - that's what they brought ... - And what does this have to do with an attempt poison one little man of the whole states ... - For a German man in the street ... - it looks like an absurdity ... - Thus, very many Russians who are brought to Germany can also be presented as "political persecutors" ...
    - To this I can add that Merkel herself (Merkel, who was not able to take a neutral position even here, at least until the investigation of the circumstances was clarified) ... - so she could not do anything about her pathological hatred of Russia ... - And this Merkel immediately so gladly took the side of blaming Russia for all sins (as usual); and took a direct part in really presenting this Navalny as a victim of the Russian special services; that all this could not simply cause many rational Germans, at least ... -At least feelings of bewilderment ... -There is not even a need to be an enemy of Russia; so as not to start being surprised at such zeal of Merkel ...
    -And personally, I will repeat myself again (and probably more than once in the future) .... -How Germany will curse this Merkel (when she is replaced from her post) for all her shoals that she has done against Russia; who turned against Germany itself ...

    Ms. Sim ..... and she herself orders articles about the "successes" of propaganda RT Knows how to promote its activities in Russia. I remember the United States laughed at how she was promoting her "achievement" in Russia - like writing on a billboard a post that blame the Russians for all sins so that all Americans could see and read it, but in fact rented an advertising space on a poster on the shortest time and placing it in the industrial zone under the bridge is the cheapest place where no one reads anything. Do you at least ask how much this lady knocks money out of Russian taxpayers for her "successful" activity, you will go nuts.

    yes, he is already waste material, he is now being liquidated by his own owners, but again Russia and Putin will be to blame
