Ursula von der Lyayen: the Kremlin lacks a constructive element in arms control

66
In virtually all matters of arms control, the Kremlin behaves unconstructively, leads InoTV the words of the Minister of Defense of Germany Ursula von der Lyayen.



I'm worried about the Kremlin’s security policy behavior. First, a flagrant violation of international law - the violent annexation of Crimea, then military threats against neighboring countries, and now there is evidence that Russia is violating joint agreements on arms control,
said der Lyayen in an interview with the Schleswig-Holsteinische Zeitung.

The RMCD agreement on the elimination of medium-range missiles, concluded between the US and Russia in 1987, made Europe safer. We are extremely interested in preserving this pillar of the European security architecture,
she continued.

According to the minister, "now it's up to Russia."

In the framework of the dialogue with the United States and NATO, it must dispel doubts about the loyalty to the treaty, which it itself has generated. Unfortunately, in almost all matters of arms control, the Kremlin is behaving unconstructively. If Russia wants to restore self-confidence, first it needs to change its behavior,
she said.

Answering a question about the protracted withdrawal of the US nuclear weapons from Germany, der Lyayen noted that “unilateral measures in this matter can only increase risks, especially against the background of the tense situation in the world”.

She also advocated an increase in the military budget of Germany to 2% of GDP.

We can support and protect each other only if everyone contributes. No one will understand if it is just economically and politically strong that Germany says that others must make a contribution, but it will still claim the protection of the community,
explained the head of the defense department.

According to her, an increase in defense spending is necessary, since against the background of "changing Russia's behavior and the increased terrorist threat, the Bundeswehr has more tasks." The funds will be spent on the modernization of obsolete weapons. It does not have to reduce social costs, because "we are talking about a gradual increase in the means of the Bundeswehr until the middle of the next decade."

The European Union of Security and Defense is our future. We have started the creation of a common command center and are forming a European defense fund with the aim of ensuring centralized supply,
said der Lyayen, adding that it would save billions. “In the future, important systems can be developed together,” she said.

We Europeans understood that we should become more independent and should take care of stability in the neighboring regions,
concluded the Minister of Defense.

                    This is exactly the tolerance of the woman in gynecology as Minister of Defense, who has risen in the economy after WWII of modern Germany - it is urgent to stand up for cancer in front of the "owner" because of the puddle in his interests! laughing
                    History repeats itself! England and the USA once again fed the Germans as hogs in Europe - and again they are sent to the East for slaughter!

We are all - both men and women - in our own way, like big children! And we cannot live without each other!

                        No way! A woman is a minister of defense, and even a gynecologist by profession, except for sarcasm, does not cause me anything else!
                        Compared to men's psychology, women's psychology and physiology are completely different from those for the Minister of Defense, especially during the war!
                        Radical feminism in the West is specially cultivated by US globalists with the goal of lowering the national professionalism of managing the “top” national state by patriotic forces. So that countries from external occupation before the aggressor do not rock the boat!

      This is how to understand ??? ... she ate too much ... The NATO troops approached our borders and she still tells us how to behave ... insolent to impossibility.

      Yeah, Fraulein is right ...

    Germany did not constructively designate this blonde as Minister of Defense.

    The INF Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range Missiles, concluded between the United States and Russia in 1987, made Europe safer.

    And what about the FSI missile defense, which put Europe in jeopardy? good
    As part of the dialogue with the US and NATO, it should dispel doubts about fidelity to the treaty, which it itself has generated.

    Already all the bases of the National American Terrorist Organization have long been absent-minded.
    The European Union for Security and Defense is our future.

    That’s probably why everyone runs from there. good
