Olaf Scholz described his vision of the goals of President Putin


Foreign policy various levels, since the start of the special military operation, have repeatedly made statements regarding Russia's foreign policy and, in particular, about the intentions and goals of the country's President Vladimir Putin. Basically, they can be divided into two types: "Putin seeks to recreate the Empire" or "Putin is afraid of democracy and freedom."


Recently, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz made statements that can be attributed to both of these categories at once. So, at first, Mr. Scholz said that the Russian leader was afraid of a “spark of democracy” threatening to spread in the Russian Federation.

Putin appears to be afraid that the spark of democracy might jump to Russia. That is why for many years he pursued a policy aimed at the disintegration of NATO and the EU

- said the German leader.

He added that President Putin's policy is aimed at returning to spheres of influence, but "he will not succeed." Apparently, in the understanding of the German chancellor, the politics of spheres of influence belongs to some distant past and is currently absent as a phenomenon.

Unfortunately for Scholz, Russia, China, and the United States have their well-established spheres of influence, but Germany does not. However, given the experience of the German chancellor in geopolitics, as well as his frank penchant for double standards and hypocrisy, one should not be surprised at such passages.

    Unfortunately for Scholz, both Russia and China and the United States have their well-established spheres of influence, but Germany does not.

    Wilhelm II, the German emperor, who unleashed 1 MB, reasoned something like this. Only instead of China, he meant England and France.

    “Putin seeks to recreate the Empire,” or “Putin is afraid of democracy and freedom.”

    Most likely, this is Scholz trying to recreate the 4th Reich, cherishing the SS in the EU and around ...
    And as for democracy and freedom in the Odessa House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014 - let them develop this at home!

    Putin seeks to recreate the Empire" or "Putin is afraid of democracy and freedom"

    1. No more "empires". Only the national Russian state from the Carpathians to the Pacific Ocean ("national state" is a term, a form of state that differs from an empire in the absence of a metropolis and colonies).
    2. Democracy is a well-established totalitarianism (in the understanding of Scholz and Co.). It has nothing to do with freedom.

    It is strange that Stoltz does not recognize spheres of influence. After all, the Americans have already hit him on the pope more than once when the chancellor deviated from the course)

    Democracy was born in ancient Athens as the rule of wealthy slave owners. Ancient Rome adopted democracy from Athens as the rule of wealthy slave owners. And American democracy, too, was born as the rule of wealthy slave owners. Curiously, is there any other democracy?

    Are those sparks he means?
