Germans change their attitude towards Russia - German press review


After the recent meeting in the Kremlin of Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the German media, usually unfriendly to us, suddenly melted away and they began to recognize obvious things.


Gratitude or recognition?


They started talking, for example, that Russia plays an important role in the world. You cannot do without it when solving key international problems. This is the leitmotif of the title article in the Tagesspiegel newspaper. Referring to Merkel’s recent trip to Moscow, the publication admits that without negotiations with Putin, the Bundescan Chancellor could not have organized an international conference in Berlin under the auspices of the UN to resolve the conflict in Libya.

For Germany, this is a very important event. For many years, Berlin has been trying to integrate itself into the company of world powers that determine the international political agenda, and to join in solving problems in the "hot spots" of the planet, but to no avail.

Now Merkel has a chance to become a moderator of the Libyan settlement and to some extent convert Germany's economic successes into international political authority. Tagesspiegel does not directly write about this, but the joy of the upcoming important talks in Berlin is visible in the article with a naked eye.

Another German media outlet, Deutschlandfunk, noted Russia's great success in the Middle East. Moscow, when making decisions here, is guided by "cold calculation" and does not engage in "political magic", but "fills the vacuum of power in the region and without any great expense seeks to strengthen its influence."

Such favorable assessments of Russia have not been in the German press for a long time. They could be regarded as gratitude for supporting the Berlin initiative on Libya, if it concerned only political issues.

Burgers are called to Gazprom


One of the leading German publications for individual investors and investors, Aktionär magazine has posted several articles on its website in which it recommends its readers to purchase shares of the Russian company Gazprom.

It seems that the moment for such a recommendation has not been chosen quite well. The completion of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline has just failed. Another international gas trunk of Gazprom, the Turkish Stream, tripped over Bulgaria. Gas in full will not be able to go through it until May.

In addition to all these troubles, the price of gas in Europe dipped. The Russian company incurs substantial losses. However, Aktionär is convinced of the “very good prospects” of Gazprom shares. True, he makes a reservation that his recommendations are addressed to “brave investors”.

Although what is the "courage", it is not very clear. Last year, Gazprom shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange surged up by as much as 90%. Buyers were attracted by the dividend policy of the Russian company. At the end of 2019, Gazprom will allocate 30% of net profit to dividends to holders of its securities, this year - 40%, and in 2022 - 50% of profit, as defined in the requirements of the Russian government for state-owned companies .

In addition to these clearly attractive data, there are other estimated indicators. Magazine expert Torsten Kufner cites one of them - the ratio of stock prices to expected profits. At Gazprom, this indicator is 5. And, for example, at the Saudi oil company Saudi Aramco - 18. The arithmetic here is simple: the lower this indicator, the more profitable are corporate shares. Conclusions are not difficult to draw.
In addition, Aktionär considers Russian companies to be underestimated and offers burghers to purchase shares in Norilsk Nickel, Sberbank, Yandex. Experts of the publication predict that in March after the next summit of the "Normandy format" Merkel will achieve the weakening of sanctions against Russia. Then the shares of Russian companies rush up at least 20%.

The fact that the Germans are expecting such a courageous step from Angela Merkel suggests that the ice in relations between Berlin and Moscow is beginning to thaw. And this has directly affected the tonality of the German media.

          China is also not so simple. For example, in the field of information technology, Germany lagged far behind not only the United States, but also China. And Germany is unlikely to catch up even in 20-25 years. Rather, it will fall behind even more ..

See comments in the Polish media or polls of the population of Poland on YouTube, there are a lot of interesting things to read / see about us.

      When terrorist attacks take place somewhere in the world, the Germans, in a sign of solidarity and grief, paint the Brandenburg Gate in the colors of the flag of the affected country.

      If they really wanted to change their attitude, they would begin to recall who suggested DO NOT stain Brandenburg Gate in the colors of the Russian flag when terrorist attacks take place in Russia.

      Their entire “turn” is only business. And nothing else. They want to finish the gas pipeline.

    The Transcaucasian vector of supreme governance under the leadership of the post-Stalin and especially post-Lebachev management finally detaches the fragment of the empire from the Asian region. The future, contrary to the declared "multipolarity", emerges only against the background of a world order closed in the planetary system, where there is only one star with a bunch of "multipolar" worlds and who are climbing out of their skin to trade hydrocarbons for a handful of bucks.

      Given the genuine attention (with a "-" sign) to the thoughts outlined above, I will share their further development.
      The system of government in the pre-Bolshevik period was Germanophilic, but unrequited to its own people by sovereigns representing the highest Russian power. This system, first promoted by Peter the Great and subsequently secured by the empresses, was Western-oriented and was represented by the Holstein-Gottorp (Romanovs) dynasty. Territorial conquests were carried out not in the interests of the Russian people, but in the interests of the dynastic group, which was surrounded by immigrants from Germany and other Western countries. Europe, as well as sympathizing national elites. In particular, the territories annexed in Central Asia were mainly a response to the British seizure of India. There really was no threat to the Russians from there, but akin to the English, Russian tsarist dynasty, it was necessary to set the flag of his house in the direction of the adjacent territory.
      Be that as it may, in the end, having spent considerable material and human resources, having annexed territories in the east and in the west, the Russian ruling dynasty failed with crushing crash all the undertakings of Mikhail Romanov, and with it betrayed the interests of the Russian people, in the person of Nicholas II abdicated the Russian throne. The Bolshevik temporary workers, in fact, needed Russia only to carry out the mission within the framework of the tasks set by the Third International to implement the world proletarian revolution, and only Stalin, a graduate of the Orthodox seminary, was not indifferent to the legacy of the Russian people, after the failure of their plans. In the furnace of the Second World War, too many resources of the USSR, both human and material, were spent. Therefore, the winner, the “colossus with feet of clay”, which appeared by the end of the 80s, was easily transformed evolutionarily into the Russian Federation. And the former victim, Federal Germany, having united, decided now, nevertheless, to make friends against the forces that inspired 75 years ago the devastating confrontation of representatives of two ideologies. The breakaway Central Asia, in the form of phantom pain, is preventing Russia from merging with the "friendly" German in his arms. ASIAN, which repels civilized people, manifests itself in our “irrational”, from the point of view of the West, striving for the East (Syria). But all this, I repeat, micro-motions against the background of a collision of lithospheric plates caused by the actions of a truly global player, however insulting this may sound for the minuses who instructed my previous post.

    Somewhere I saw an interesting calculation that 98% of the "German media" are financially (and as a result, administratively) dependent on the state.

    Germany needs enmity with Russia as a flea dog. I do not mean different tales about the friendship of peoples and other things like that, but Russia is a profitable trading partner and the Germans understand this very well. Another thing is that the United States, at least for now, has too much potential to simply ignore, so Germany has to maneuver.

    IMHO Russia currently has the highest military-political potential in Europe. And, it is understood that Merkel wants to drop into the last carriage. There is still little chance for Germany and France there will be no chance to say goodbye to the influence of the "exclusive nation." Here they are racing and rushing to Moscow.

      if you can’t forgive, do not use anything German, refuse products from companies like bosch and so on. , for example, replace the Bosch boiler with Chinese, do not drive German cars, and so on for every point. Stop calling Brustover a parapet, call a tie a neckerchief, a barrier - a barrier because maybe these are all German words, or come up with your own names for them.
      The Nazis shot your uncle, and not all Germans were Nazis.
      both of my grandfathers fought against Nazi Germany, both were wounded and received medals for courage, my grandmother’s brother even got into the KL, but I relate to the Germans normally, I repeat, not all were Nazis even among those who fought. Jews almost all Jews identified and eliminated Natsiks and who did not, the Germans themselves found and imprisoned. and those others who fought themselves have died out almost everything

    The United States forced China to buy $ 200 billion worth of goods and services from them in the next two years. In Washington, Vice Premier of the State Council of the PRC Liu He has already signed an agreement which provides that the Chinese side will purchase US industrial goods for $ 75 billion, and energy - $ 50 billion.

    In addition, imports of agricultural products for $ 40 billion are envisaged. And China will have to spend another 35-40 billion dollars in two years on American services, the newspaper notes. Earlier, analysts predicted that the agreement would provide for the obligations of China to purchase American goods from three industries

    In the next 2 years alone, 50 billion for energy from a member of the BRICS, the Shanghai Agreement and just X's best friend.
