The head of intelligence of Germany: Russia is more a threat than a partner

53
The head of the Federal Intelligence Service of Germany (BND) Bruno Kahl called on Western countries to be ready to respond to the “potential threat” from the Russian Federation, but he noted that it is necessary to maintain “close ties” with her, reports RIA News.




In the face of Russia, we have a potential threat rather than a security partner,
said Kahl, speaking in Munich.

He added that Russia has returned to the international arena as an “uncomfortable partner.” Now the West needs to be ready to “balance and contain” this threat.

At the same time, according to Kalya, Western countries “need to maintain close ties and channels of interaction,” responding to Moscow’s interest in cooperation.

In recent years, Russia has declared unprecedented NATO activity on its western borders. The Alliance continues to expand its initiatives, calling its activities "deterring Russian aggression." In this connection, the Kremlin has repeatedly pointed out that Russia does not pose a threat to anyone, but will not disregard potentially dangerous actions for it.

          I am not surprised at this ... after all, there was a promise by Western leaders to Gorbachev not to push NATO troops to the borders of RUSSIA, but they violated it ... and now they wonder why RUSSIA is taking measures to protect itself from NATO aggression.

          Forgot to see about the NATO attack on Yugoslavia or Libya, and we remember it well ... what ends the expansion of the WEST to the east ... only
          the war.

          Just Not Imbicil.
          He cares about the leading role of Germany in the European community. In the created military structures of the EU.
          He perfectly understands that for Germany and other countries there are no threats from Russia.
          But. to unite the countries of Europe under the leadership of Germany, you need a bogeyman = a scarecrow for them. Here and use the old achievements of the time of King Gorokh .adolf. and manuals from across the ocean.

            You have now called our country a "scarecrow." They did not quote someone, but they themselves applied this word. They demonstrated their erudition and deep analytical abilities, the result of which was the recognition by you of our country "bogeyman = scarecrow."

    Well, that’s the culture of the European. Anyone who can give change is credited to the enemy. Europeans do not know another attitude even to their neighbors. Hence the numerous excuses in the wars of extermination. From baptism to democratization.
    In general, Christianity allowed the development of various kinds of ideas, for all occasions. You take * Christian covenants * and choose for any occasion, from * love ... * to * destroy to the seventh generation *.

      I immediately remembered a bearded anecdote as a Georgian Georgian taught the Russian language; "remember Givi, salt and beans are written with a soft sign, and the fork and plate are without a soft sign." So the feces (surname of the head of the BND) is written without a soft sign and fully corresponds to it. smile

Refugees -Fascism- In the face-The nightmare of the Anglo-Saxons (RF + Germany). By 2030, the United States will “shrink” to its official borders. And we have an Arctic grouping of troops developing and among Americans the contingent of residents has changed not in favor of whites, etc. repeat bully In general, we live in an interesting time colleagues. hi

      The joke is that the Slavs founded Berlin. Ber-bear for a start, purely old Russian. And the northeast of Germany is generally saturated with Slavic names. Plus archeology is a stubborn thing. True, the Germans sometimes dig back what they found.

    Everything Merkel is doing, her military friend in army affairs, now Bruno Feces and many others, namely: stupid support of Ukraine and all kinds of promotion of frenzied Ukrainian nationalism, active promotion of Russophobia, both in Germany and in the EU, fastening Russia to the Minsk agreements as not a guarantor, but one of the parties to the conflict, the actual appeal of K Poroshenko not to fulfill the Minsk agreements, the endless extension of sanctions, tales of the Russian threat, the creation of the European Union Armed Forces and much more - nothing more than the gradual preparation of Western Europe, led by Germany, for another aggression against Russia. Otherwise, why are they spinning all this? By the way, Hitler began about this too.
