Russia's Defense Ministry has accused Federal Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) of "inability" in security issues. The spokesman for the ministry, Major General Igor Konashenkow, said on Friday: “Ms. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer took over the chair of Germany's Defense Minister a while ago.

The reason for criticism is an appearance by Kramp-Karrenbauer in the Bundestag last Wednesday. There she said that negotiations with Russia should be negotiated from a “position of strength”. "That too was always a good tradition of German foreign policy, and it should remain so for the future," said the minister, according to the meeting's transcript.

Ministry spokesman refers to the Second World War

With a view to the German crimes in the Second World War, Konashenkov now recalled that this “position of strength” had tragic consequences for the whole world. Russia had hoped that “politicians with common sense” in Germany would correct the minister. "Unfortunately that didn't happen." It is not the first time that German politicians have expressed themselves in this way.

Russia is always in favor of a “dialogue on equal terms”.

According to the protocol, Kramp-Karrenbauer continued: It was “a fact that the Russian side has invested heavily in modernizing its armed forces, that it has new weapons, that the threat has become much more evident (...). If we want to come into negotiations - including disarmament negotiations - from a position of strength, then we have to strengthen our position. ”(RND)
