Russia bans entry to the country for the heads of the German Defense Ministry

75

Moscow has decided to expand the list of German citizens for whom entry into the Russian Federation is closed. This was a response to the destructive actions of the European Union.


This was announced today by the press service of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

It all started with the hacking of the computer networks of the German Bundestag in 2015, in which Germany traditionally accused "Russian hackers", without presenting any evidence of Russia's involvement, but only stating their presence. This scandal was consistently unleashed by the German press until, in October this year, the Council of Europe imposed unilateral personal sanctions against two citizens of the Russian Federation, as well as against one legal entity.

Russia has repeatedly turned to the German side with a proposal to join in the joint investigation of cyber attacks, but Moscow's initiatives have been stubbornly ignored by Berlin all this time. From this we can conclude that revealing the truth was not included in the plans of the German leadership. It only tried to arrange a provocation against Russia.

Realizing this and guided by the principle of reciprocity adopted in the diplomatic environment, the Russian Foreign Ministry banned a number of senior officials of the security and intelligence structures of the German Defense Ministry from entering the country. And if the FRG authorities decide to continue the confrontation, Russia reserves the right to additional restrictive measures.

In 2015, the work of the German parliament was completely paralyzed due to a large-scale hacker attack on its computer networks. Because of this, the Bundestag was disconnected from the Internet for several days. The attackers hacked into many services, including the email address of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

        if there was, then honor and praise to our hackers, and if not ... well, no, and no trial. the Germans anyway a shame!
        by the way, recent screams about a certain hacking in the States - exactly from the same league! signed for impotence!

          Russia has repeatedly turned to the German side with a proposal to join in the joint investigation of cyber attacks, but Moscow's initiatives have been stubbornly ignored by Berlin all this time. From this we can conclude that revealing the truth was not part of the plans of the German leadership. It only tried to arrange a provocation against Russia.

          There is nothing surprising in this at all, since traces of cyber attacks lead to the US intelligence services.

          The United States simply took advantage of the favorable international environment in 2015 so that Germany could darkly dump the American blame on Russia. And the USA - under the cover of the voluntary entry of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea from Ukraine into the Russian Federation - just fully inspected the entire German Bundestag - their NATO ally.

          It should be borne in mind that there was already once an international scandal between Germany and the United States with the CIA's wiretapping of phone calls by Chancellor Merkel! A scandal that was stopped on the brakes.

          Well, how can Washington once again - already in 2015 - in its American interests not miss such an opportunity to extensively inspect the entire German Bundestag?
          The US intelligence services did not miss such an opportunity for Washington!

          What kind of joint investigation by Germany and Russia about the cyber attack of the FRG Bundestag by the FRG could one speak at the same time ?! Even hedgehogs laugh about this in the forest!

          The provocation of the USA and the FRG against Russia is unambiguously obvious!

            yes, it is likely that the Americans arranged all this themselves. but this is already almost not important ...

            declaring the Russian Federation in an act of war (and this is undoubtedly an act of war) and not answering at least the same, the Germans signed in complete impotence

              Well, it's not for nothing that anti-globalization artists back in 2012 spoke very symbolically about this in their famous caricature! Namely, they spoke about Germany and a number of other countries, showing which countries and which countries are on a hand leash, like domestic dogs.

          If so ... such an explanation would be logical and understandable. But this is different. States are now at the level of discrimination in which it is necessary to grab more and more. If they stop doing this, it is death for them. This is inertia. Or simply, they cannot help but do it even if they want to. And it will all end very badly

        Do not think that the Germans are so stupid and do not know how to stage a play with loud names, reproaching us for anything, including cyber attacks, and the poisoning of Navalny.
        If all this is taken at face value, then you will not be able to explain why they still do not legally prohibit the construction of the SP-2 and reduce the purchase of Russian gas, for example, to 5-10% of all foreign purchases, by switching to US LNG or Qatar.
        Moreover, I think that the hacking was organized by the Americans themselves, showing them their capabilities, and as a condition they demanded from the Germans to blame the Russian hackers for this, otherwise the attacks would resume. Knowing that Merkel has long been hooked by the US special services, her reaction and further gestures in our direction are completely understandable. But I think that it still takes into account the interests of German capital, and they do not want to miss out on the benefits of cooperation with us in the energy field.
        In general, you should not take such performances seriously - they are a list for us, we are a list for them, and our trade will increase, and I have no doubt about that.

      Is a conventional intelligence operation supposed to lead to a thermonuclear war with Russia? Maybe these cyber attacks are aimed at preventing new June 22 and Tonkin incidents by NATO countries.

      The same question can be asked to those who fell under their sanctions - were they going to go to Germany?
      The Official Journal of the EU states that the sanctions are being imposed on the Chief of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Igor Kostyukov, as well as Dmitry Badin, who is allegedly "an officer of military intelligence at the 85th Main Center of Special Services of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation."

    It works like this. 

    And the direction of Russia is very satisfying, paid and quite warm.

      you are for a faceless mass that can be put on the altar at the whim of a bunch of madmen

      Not at the whim of a bunch of madmen, but for the Motherland. It was not Humpbacked Dog who sent me to Kandahar, but the Motherland. And the father of 25 calendars around the world was not driven by the Soviet government and the terrible KGB, but by the Motherland. That is why I will repeat myself - we will put as much as necessary for Victory.

      We have already tried to ride tanks in Russia. If historical memory fails them, let them try again ... Let us recall our roads, how "good" they are for German armored vehicles ...

    in general, a similar hack is casus belli. act of war. in theory, the Germans should have declared war. or be silent in a rag ...
    there was a press hysteria instead ... a disgrace!

    But how can they declare war, if in fact it is not known to whom? Russia was appointed, but in fact was not revealed. Whom to announce?

      How it was not revealed, if the first creator of the EU named after Adolf Aloyzovich Hitler, their idol was driven to suicide, then who do you think is to blame for who set fire to the Reichstag and cut off the connection, so much so that Merkel the Fuhrerist could not get through to the firemen. Of course, today's Russia. It's good that I managed to put on my underwear, so I jumped out of the window in my underwear, and all the jokes to you. The legs are not shaved, the underwear turned out to be male. How can you put up with this!

    From time to time, you have to take Berlin or Paris by storm. They don't understand otherwise.

    No need to "storm" anyone "Strong is not the person who conquers his opponents. Strong is only the one who conquers himself in anger." [Al-Bukhari; Book 47, No. 47.3.12]. "I will beat carefully, but hard!" (C) laughing

    Otherwise, they just ran around here ...

    The Germans correctly refused admission. Otherwise, our spies would have received clear evidence of their mistakes and made conclusions for the future in order to prevent such.
