Rahr: Moscow gives Berlin one last chance to mend relations


Despite the fact that in Russia they started talking about revising relations with the West in connection with the incessant unsubstantiated accusations on any occasion, Moscow extended its hand to Berlin, giving the last chance to mend relations.


The Russians want to conduct a dialogue with the Germans on the basis of mutual respect. About this in an interview with a Russian newspaper "Sight" said German political scientist Alexander Rahr.

He noted that for three decades there had not been such a number of conflict situations in Russian-German relations, often formed out of the blue, as recently. Moreover, the corruption of relations between the countries is recognized not only by experts, but even by officials of both states.

This can be seen even with the naked eye. It is difficult to correct them after the statements referred to by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova. The door is not closed yet, but it is closing

- he specified.

The expert also commented on the reaction of German entrepreneurs to the words of the representatives of the Russian Foreign Ministry and the actions of European politicians... In his opinion, business is in despair, because he received support from the German authorities, and now it will not. At the same time, business was a kind of conductor of diplomacy and did much more useful for the two countries than cultural exchange.

At the same time, German business itself is not to blame for the disagreements between the countries, it remained in Russia and is trying to save the situation

- he added.

The political scientist believes that the "Navalny case" only led to a short-term emotional outburst in German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But since then she has been calm and balanced. She perfectly understands how economic relations with Russia are important for Germany.

Rahr denied the version that the United States has compromising evidence on Merkel, although the Americans have been tapping her phone for years. He stressed that Merkel's relationship to Russia is associated with her mentality, biography and memories of the GDR. He completely ruled out the control of Merkel by the Americans.

We remind you that on October 7, 2020, Zakharova said that after the "unacceptable in content and tone of the statement" of the foreign ministers of France and Germany, which concerned the "Navalny case", it became impossible to do business "as before" with Paris and Berlin. Before that same point of view expressed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

    Isn't it time not for the guilty to go home and save the day there ...
    The villages are on fire, but business has nothing to do with it, he just sells gasoline, is busy with a "noble" business, makes money ...

    In parallel with the outstretched hand, it is time to put the TT to Europa's temple and pull the trigger if no signs of consciousness are found. Is it really imperceptible that the initial phase of the war has already been completed. Until NATO divisions appear on our borders, we must now inflict a military defeat on Europe.

        Either in the face or in the back of the head. Either we will wait for warheads to fall on us on the way from work / school, or we will destroy them first. The war will start one way or another, the question is whether we will be caught with our pants down or will we attack first.

          Well, well - destroy you first, and they second you. Just a simple question - why attack you? Well, for what purpose? To conquer you? Again - why? Resources? So they have enough of their own, and what is not enough, then you are with Why are there huge losses of money, people, then feed 146 million beggars, bring social services, medicine, infrastructure, etc. to Western standards? There is no point in this and no resources will recoup it. You are simply very afraid, they believe that you are inadequate, and therefore prepare for all sorts of surprises on your part.

            Oh, don't say it. Europe would at least raise Bulgaria to "Western standards".

            You have to be a clinical idiot to constantly cling, insult, kick, rob a person whom you consider inadequate and dangerous.
            As for the infrastructure, the western one is slowly but surely sinking below ours. Starting from the roads, health care systems (for most people). As for the social sphere and the rest, you just need to stop the system of robbery of Russia that developed in the 90s and eliminate the liberals who feed on it. We are waiting for the US elections.

              One does not fit with the other. The first are only interested in stuffing their pockets and who will win they absolutely do not care. For this, they enclose themselves with straws here and there. True, there her insolent Saxons cynically steal, but ours agree to this, if only there was somewhere to fall. The west will burst (which is unlikely with its pack tactics) - their serfs will not go anywhere. Well, counting on the sane policy of the new US president, whoever he is, is generally from the category of fantasies. They are in the euphoria of the collapse of the USSR and it seems quite feasible to finish off Russia or destroy the PRC in a similar way. Nasty things and provocations will only intensify, no matter how our Foreign Ministry smoothes corners about them. We have been and will remain geopolitical opponents.

            In Syria, Libya, Iraq, Venezuela, Chile, Peru, Cuba, dozens of African countries, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Yugoslavia, resources are also either zero-based, or they are not exclusive, but democracy came there and flooded the whole earth with blood and meat scraps. Logic is not applicable to the West, these are mentally ill people. And in order not to survive 41 years a second time, we must destroy them first. And if you are from Ukraine, then do not worry, no one will use nuclear warheads on it, although the overwhelming part of Western Ukraine will surely boil under radiation sickness and nuclear fallout from Poland.

    The playful old woman Europe is embracing the insanity more and more tightly.
    Looking from Russia is a sad sight.

    But the fact that? Nothing undermines credibility like impossible threats.
