Political scientist Rahr spoke about a serious conflict between Scholz and Berbock

The new inexperienced German Foreign Minister (from December 8, 2021) Annalena Berbock not only makes harsh and non-diplomatic statements about Russia, but even cannot normally communicate with members of the German coalition government (SPD, Union 90 / Greens and the FDP). German political scientist Alexander Rahr spoke about this on the air of the YouTube channel Politwera, answering questions from viewers.

He noted that the leaders of the German foreign policy department are traditionally appointed from the minor political forces in the coalition, but the judgments of the "green" Berbock are openly ideologized. Moreover, she tries to impose her point of view on others and does not reckon with their opinion.

Berbock is now in serious conflict with Chancellor Olaf Scholz (leader of the SPD and Chancellor of Germany - ed.). This is a very serious conflict that is taking place in the German government. From her first day in the coalition government, Berbock began trying to pursue her external line without consulting the Chancellor. She travels to other countries, chooses the agenda herself, first to Paris, then to Warsaw, Brussels

- said Rahr.

Rahr explained that in the FRG, the head of the Foreign Ministry may not coordinate all his actions with the head of the government. However, the chancellor has the final say. In addition, Berbock has no right to violate the coalition agreement.

But the trick is that the coalition agreement does not say anything good about Russia, only that Germany will defend Ukraine's interests

Rahr explained.

He stressed that it is precisely this nuance that gives Berbock and the entire Union 90 / Greens the opportunity to rant about the “return” of Crimea, the “liberation” of Donbass and threaten Russia with sanctions for a “probable attack” on Ukraine. Rahr clarified that the Union 90 / Greens party is an extremely radicalized, aggressive and belligerent political force towards Moscow. Supporters of the "green" do not hesitate to declare on social networks that "the Russian regime needs to be tough to talk to."

Rahr summed up that the voices of authoritative and sane Germans are simply drowned in the uncompromising hysteria that Russophobes are stirring up.

    Give RT DE a couple of weeks to work - and ordinary Germans will find out that we are ready to sell them gas for SP-2 for no more than 500 dollars, and now they have a price tag of 1700. And all their bureaucrats like anal-lenki are greening against the SP-2 commissioning for bribes from the USA. The crackle from Burbock flying out in the ass will be heard even in America ...
    And also tell me that under long-term contracts, from which the EU bureaucrats want to move away - we are ready to sell at all for 300 - then the chair of the newly elected chancellor will begin to swing.

      Millions of euros are spent on RT's useless propaganda. In Germany there are millions of Volksdeutsch who fled from the USSR and from Russia. And with them thousands of Jews under the German program of preferential resettlement. He knows in detail about the low standard of living in the USSR and in Russia. Simonyan went to the path of Soviet cloth propaganda in the 50s and 70s. Major General Nikolsky, a former military attaché at the Soviet embassy in Sweden, in his memoirs ridiculed the Khrushchev mountains of communist literature in Swedish delivered to the embassy, ​​which were then burned in ovens for destroyed documents. The sailors of the 5th operational squadron were loaded with containers of the same waste paper in Arabic. Moreover, everything was published on high-quality coated paper. The sailors drowned this waste paper in the Mediterranean Sea, burned cipher clerks in ovens. The population of the Federal Republic of Germany did not care about such clumsy propaganda.

    It's a strange thing, but German women, as soon as they get into power, begin to behave so belligerent and clearly Russophobic that one wonders if there are real men in Germany.

    In the history of Russia (USSR), women like Berbock are well remembered in German concentration camps, terrifying and ordering with a whip in their hands, with a huge hatred of women in captivity. Remind Berbock how they ended, but you can repeat.

    Scholz now makes no sense to take "friendly" steps towards Russia, at the beginning of his path as chancellor. Everyone expects him to position himself on the topic of Russia. Against the backdrop of hysteria in Eastern Europe that they are supposedly being thrown and the whole situation as a whole, it is now beneficial for Scholz to position himself as a staunch supporter of the mainstream. All these "solutions" are purely symbolic. This way he can avoid accusations of deflection in front of Russia when the pipe needs to be launched. Now it is even beneficial to Russia, so that Scholz dampens fears about his policy with Russia. Although it is not yet clear to what extent Scholz is able to defend the interests of Germany in the face of pressure from the United States and within the EU and the coalition government itself. Will he have enough courage.
