Steinmeier: "Russia will not achieve goals only by military means"

38
Having declared the other day that a whole era has ended with the assumption of Donald Trump's presidency and the 21st century is really coming, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier decided to speak about Russia this time. According to the head of the German Foreign Ministry, Russia today perceives itself as a serious geopolitical and military player in the modern world, and Russia is “satisfied” for a short time.
Steinmeier said that Russia identified itself as such during the operation in Syria.

Steinmeier: "Russia will not achieve goals only by military means"


A translation of a fragment of an interview with the German Foreign Ministry’s publication Züddeutsche Zeitung, which will soon leave his post, publishes RIA News:
The large-scale operation of Russia in Syria was, of course, launched, among other things, to challenge the provocative position of the United States, which attributed the Russian Federation to regional forces. At least from the point of view of the Russians, they seem to have succeeded. Russia is perceived as a serious military and political player. Perhaps many in Russia are satisfied with this in the short term. However, Russia should not engage in self-deception. There will be no way back to the times of Yalta (talking about the Yalta Conference).


Interesting logic. If there is no return to the times of Yalta, it turns out that Steinmeier is fully satisfied with the pre-Yalta version of the development of events with a raging war and scattered actions of those whom later became called "allies" ...

In addition, Steinmeier said that by military means alone, Russia will not achieve the “necessary goals”, and Russia “needs to find a political partner.” And what if Russia has no political partners? Or, out of habit, Steinmeier forgets that Germany and the United States are not all countries on the planet.

    I can’t make any sane conclusions after the passage about Yalta. request And here is Yalta? What does the situation of 1945 have to do with today's realities? Where are the parallels here? Or does Frank think that the third world is already raging? what

      there will be Yalta, only the players are different, but Russia will also remain a key player. The world is changing, countries are becoming less and less comfortable with the chaos of Fashington and their howling jackals, they will have their own Nuremberg, time will put everything in and ask everyone

      The pensioner was simply struck by the “depth of thought” and “comprehensive analysis”. How did a person with such a banal narrow-mindedness be the Foreign Minister of a leading European country? Or in the West, in order to be a minister or politician, it is enough to be loyal to the master, and the other professional qualities are no longer needed? There are enough such "politicians" in Ukraine. Europe is getting smaller.

        This pensioner forgot, however, THAT WE cleaned Germany of fascism, THIS WE passed the VICTORY PARADE in September 1945 in Berlin, and thanks to US RUSSIAN, he could become who he is: be born, get an education, become a politician. He apparently did not understand that RUSSIAN ANY WAR IS NOT NEEDED!

          This figure, did not forget anything, since they especially have nothing to remember. Stalin treated the defeated Germans very gently, and Germany, according to the results of the Second World War, got off very cheaply. For what the Germans did with us, the whole of the Faterland had to be razed to the ground, then we would remember. So that from the mere mention of the Russians, diarrhea would immediately begin. But where is it, we are good, damn it. It would be nice to check this pensioner, but were his relatives, for example, not in the SS? Do not be surprised if this is so.

      Maybe sclerosis, but in one he is right! There is a serious imbalance, on the one hand, Russia presents itself as a serious geopolitical player, very strong militarily. On the other, a country with a weak economy. It is clear that an economically weak country will not be able to keep the army at the proper level for a long time, and be able to geopolitical companies, to project its strength outside.
      Therefore, over time, in our country, either the economy will grow to the proper level to correspond to its geopolitical status, or we will simply slide into the role of a regional power.

        Well, yes, Yalta was an alliance against fascist Germany at the final stage of the war. Steinmeier alludes to the fact that today there can be no such alliance against Germany. But Geor Steinmeier should make sure that 1938 does not happen to his Germany. Columns of neo-fascists are already marching through the cities and villages of Germany, and this suggests the repetition of "Yalta". But that will be a completely different story. yes

    Not without the USA (through third countries) Germany of the 30s turned into a powerful military-industrial empire, and not without them it recovered. All aggressor countries of World War II are completely subordinate to the United States.

    Envy takes a German. They, with a military coalition of 60 states, have only propagated terrorism with an influx of "refugees" into Europe. Rather, with two or even three "coalitions." And Russia, with small forces of about 5000 people, was able to reverse the course of the war and significantly cool the scale of tension. Let me remind Herr Steinmeier that the United States, Germany and France tried and are trying to achieve military means to solve geopolitical issues. It was Germany that pushed Ukraine into the Civil War when Yanukovych signed a number of conciliation documents with European ambassadors and the "opposition". So envy silently, Herr Steinmeier.

    Opinion of the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, who will soon leave his post someone other than zhurnalyug interests? winked
    Russia alone will not achieve the “necessary goals” by military means, and Russia “needs to seek a political partner”
    Isn't it him? Russia stopped the massacre unleashed by the FSA and geyropoy in Syria and Donbass, at least its acute phase. Slowly but consistently, forcing everyone to peace. Steinmeier and Shaise Fraum need to think about neutralizing the Islamic expeditionary force under the guise of refugees, which the Macaques sent to them. Instability in geyrop due to the "Islamic factor" has already affected the buck / geyro ratio. What's next? The clashes will provoke local protests and the geyspo will have to squeeze out "refugees". Where? To Russia and Belarus? Do we need it? To Ukraine, so that later this horde led by NATO instructors will move with thinned rows of banderlogs to Russia? Then the Cossacks will again have to drink coffee on the streets of Paris and Berlin, and phishington will have to be destroyed as the main source of evil.

    “The large-scale operation of Russia in Syria was, of course, launched in order to challenge the provocative position of the United States, which attributed the Russian Federation to regional forces. At least from the point of view of the Russians, they seem to have succeeded. Russia is perceived as a serious military and a political player. Perhaps many in Russia will be happy with this for a short time. However, Russia should not engage in self-deception. There will be no way back to the time of Yalta (we are talking about the Yalta Conference). "

    It seems to me that Steinmeier initially did not have the correct assessment of the motivation for Russia's actions. They are accustomed to the priority of demonstrating their ambitions, while Russia in Syria primarily addressed its own security issues and commercial interests. The way that country leaders name and define neighbors - global, regional or intergalactic powers - actually shows to a greater extent the limited thinking of the politician. These terms are not legal, non-binding. And when Russia "bared the biceps inadvertently," they responded to it, and it doesn’t matter that Obama called us a regional power. In this context, Steinmeier would have to sprinkle his ashes on his head, because lately, for whatever he would take, nothing has been brought to its logical conclusion. Neither with migrants, nor with guarantees in Ukraine, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany has any positive results. And it is taken to evaluate Russia, which is tearing ISIS in practice, without a long talk-shop. And he is afraid of a return to Yalta in the sense of determining the spheres of influence of global players on the European continent. After all, if Putin and Trump agree on the division of spheres of influence and respect for contractual boundaries, then the Federal Republic of Germany falls from the category of global actors into objects, and this is insulting ... smile No wonder, after all, the Syrian question moved from Geneva to Astana. This is an indication that the EU has failed in resolving security problems.

    "Or Steinmeier, out of habit, forgets that Germany and the USA are far from all the countries on the planet.". Steinmeier unfortunately has already forgotten or is pretending to have forgotten about who and when his fellow tribesmen put in place while losing millions of the best people in the country.

    What surprises me is different. - the EU lived calmly, but no, its leaders are obsessed with megalomania and blinded by hatred towards us, without really calculating the consequences, started a mess with Russia and brewed porridge in Ukraine, a very smart Steinmeier plays a significant role in all this mess "- it was he who led and inspired the operation" deception "of Ukraine together with France and Poland. And now he builds himself an oracle and claims to be a leading figure in Europe. Once lied, who will believe you?

The German grandfather told his grandson that they walked along the street of this city for 200 days and so did not reach the end of the street. In general, it is time for Herr Steinmeier to remove the globalist pattern from the brain and adjust his thoughts to liberal manuals. laughing

    You are a stupid man, Stanmeyer, Russia has never achieved goals by military means, unless it was forced to do so !!!!
    All the time, where they were, they built and created, schools and factories, healed and built.
    And those who say that they only killed and bombed, so these are not distant people, looking at the situation from one side !!!!!

    American troops in Germany turn any German boltology into nothing. They don’t have their own politics. And they don’t have any power. Germany turns from a "island of stability and prosperity" into a powder keg. Indeed, right now, when we write these lines, migrants are flocking to Germany without end. And then there are the elections on the nose. And the owner has changed over a puddle.
    Not very good events are coming in Germany. Well, rightly so for their meanness and deceit. They, it seems to me, do not understand that the United States spread rot as a competitor in the market. That's the whole secret. That's the whole politics.
