Russia-Germany relations cooling – a straw in the wind

Russia-Germany relations cooling – a straw in the wind

This slightly ranty article from the front page of Pravda identifies, among other things, a German “soft push to the East”. The writer has the good manners to admit that Angela Merkel is not the same as Adolf Hitler, but that’s as much as he is prepared to concede.

Of course this is mostly about the EU’s intent (at least partly driven by Germany, which seems to pay the bills for everyone else) to force Cyprus to contribute to repaying its banking-sector debts. A lot of those now tax-threatened accounts in Cyprus contain Russian money.

Herald supposes the German bogeyman will always be useful for domestic fear-mongering in Russia.
