"Conversation from a position of strength": Germany called the response of the Russian Defense Ministry "tasteless"

On Wednesday, November 25, German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, in her address to the Bundestag, said that it was necessary to speak with the Russians from a position of strength - this was the case before, and the same should be done in the future. Moscow's "tasteless" response came immediately, writes the German magazine Bild.

Conversation with Moscow from a position of strength has always been a good tradition of German foreign policyand so it should remain in the future

- announced Kramp-Karrenbauer from the rostrum of the German legislature.

Major General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian defense department, noted that the current German Defense Minister, Mrs. Kramp-Karrenbauer, is not able to propose intelligible measures to strengthen the defense capability in Europe. As for the aforementioned "position of strength", Konashenkov recalled the unfavorable result of such a German approach towards Russia in the middle of the last century, referring to the crimes of the German Nazis during World War II and the hoisting of the Soviet flag over the Reichstag in 1945.

Germany's "position of strength" had tragic consequences for the whole world

- noted the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

However, Bild called the comparison of the current situation with the times of World War II "bad taste".

Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu recommended to his German colleague “ask grandfather” how Berlin's last attempt to talk to Moscow from a position of strength ended.

    "A tasty answer" is when German aunts with chamber pots are standing at the broken Reichstag for undercooked barley porridge.

    She probably had an SS grandfather. Painfully quickly, she got together with Russia "with a position of strength" to talk. As if again the defeated ko оказатьсяr̶y̶t̶a Reichstag does not appear.

    German media and politicians have bad taste. The answer is just very savory. And in catching up, I would advise Shoigu on the spot: "I don't like being reminded of May 45, filter the bazaar, and do not blurt out a fool"

    Der Tagesspiegel:

    Germany and alone would have dealt with Russia
    With such impressive economic and military resources, Germany could "in no time" deal with Russia even alone, in an emergency situation creating an army superior to the Russian troops in all respects, the German publication claims.
    However, this will not happen for one simple reason - it will cost many times more than the budget that Berlin spends on reliable and collective defense within NATO, the newspaper adds.

    There is a suspicion that the leaders of Germany are sick with covid and do not feel the taste or smell. So many years have passed, the smell of the Soviet diesel engine has disappeared.

    Shoigu advised this young lady to ask her grandfather for advice on the fact that speaking with Moscow from a position of strength has always been a good tradition of German foreign policy, and so it should remain in the future. I would add to Shoigu's advice and advice to this young lady, to seek advice from my grandmother. She, I think, has something to say to her crazy granddaughter.

    Such a tradition cannot be called a good tradition, but there is one tradition - it is once in a hundred years to gather all the gay Europeans in a heap and all together receive a zvizdyuley from Russia, it seems that we have already approached the next such action

    Hitler, too, did not take into account Frederick the Great's face stuffed with Russians, but in vain ... Taste, this is six of the United States and bullying the Russian Federation, if Berlin has not yet understood this, then the Germans need people smarter than the old woman Annegret who has gone mad

    They are preparing their population for war with Russia.
    At first they pressed that we are a threat, now the second phase is "about the need to speak only from a position of strength", when the third phase of the Western media rhetoric that only the use of force against Russia and there is no other way for the existence of the West - the processing of the Western people is over, no doubt collect duffel bags and load cartridges into clips.

    Barack Obama says he has three buttons: yellow, green, red. I pressed green - there is no Europe, yellow - no China, red - no Russia. And Merkel says: "My grandmother had three toilets: gold, silver and faience. But when the Russians entered Berlin, she dressed up in the corridor."
