German Press is Concerned about Medvedev’s Idea to Hold a victory Parade in Berlin
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev threatened German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius with a victory parade in Berlin by posting a corresponding post on social networks.
This was done in response to a statement by an official from Germany that he considers the actions of the Ukrainian military on the territory of the Russian Federation acceptable.
The words of the Russian politician drew attention to the German newspaper Bild.
– such a statement of his could not go unnoticed in Germany.
The German press is concerned about Medvedev’s idea to hold a parade in Berlin. The Bild story even stated that he was “pissed off”.
Journalists from Germany noticed that not a single phrase of Pistorius supposedly speaks of Berlin’s intention to attack Russia. But in Medvedev’s words they saw a direct threat against Germany, and this is not the first time such statements have been made by a Russian official who once held the highest post in the country. In particular, earlier he talked about the bombing of Berlin.
One can understand the concern of the German press, but Pistorius, like other Western officials, should refrain from making irresponsible statements. They should remember that every word or action can cause a response.
German journalists are somewhat surprised by such rhetoric from a politician who previously allegedly held more liberal views and was even considered almost “pro-Western”.
