"It looks like shots from a militant": a German reporter commented on the maneuvers of the RF Armed Forces in Crimea

Army exercise footage aviation RF



The large German edition FAZ published an article by the reporter Gerhard Gnauck, who visited the south of Ukraine - the territories that adjoin the Russian Crimea. The German journalist claims that he saw the maneuvers of Russian troops "near the Ukrainian borders." According to him, "it resembles shots from an action movie."

Gnauk tells German readers that the Russian military parachuted on the coast in the Crimea, firing multiple launch rocket systems "similar to the installations of the Second World War -" Katyusha ", used aircraft, including combat helicopters."

Then, in a text prepared by a German journalist, it turns out that he saw all this on TV. We are talking about the footage that was broadcast by the RF Ministry of Defense and Russian federal channels, which are "banned in Ukraine."

The German journalist makes it clear that the footage of the Russian maneuvers carried out as part of the combat readiness test made a strong impression on him.

The German author writes that the territories of Ukraine adjacent to the Crimea are in decline. Trains do not run through railway stations near the Crimean borders, which, according to Gnauk, previously transported hundreds of thousands, primarily Russian, tourists.

Gnauk:

The Ukrainian border guard officer says that the Ukrainian border guards have no contact with the opposite side. And nothing at the Kalanchak border crossing changes from year to year.

On the pages of the FAZ it is indicated that many residents of Crimea cross the border without any problems:

For Ukrainian border guards, they have a Ukrainian passport, for Russian ones - a Russian one. Only Crimean cars, most of which have Russian license plates, are not allowed by Ukrainian border guards.

The German author, referring to Ukrainian officials, writes that Russia "has occupied the Crimea and continues its creeping seizure of the Black Sea region." The statement is given by the mayor of Ukrainian Berdyansk, who, clearly wishing to remain in the post-Maidan trend, says that "Putin is turning Russia into a second North Korea, and Ukraine is building part of Europe, because Putin is doing everything to prevent us." At least, this is how the words of the Berdyansk mayor are interpreted by the German edition.

In his material, the German journalist recalls that Ukraine "in connection with Russia's actions in Crimea" cut off water supplies to the peninsula. According to the reporter, these supplies will not be restored.

          Due to the fact that Putin "turns into North Korea", Ukraine is arranging a semblance of genocide against the local population of Crimea, depriving them of water and electricity. So that those who are "oppressed" by Putin die faster) Is it the same?)

        No, what are you ... from the article it turns out that he almost alone saves us from us:
        “Some of my friends have already packed the essentials to leave the region in the event of a serious conflict. But I didn't, ”the mayor says. He shows layout anti-tank complex, which defiantly put at his desk - between the portrait of the national poet Taras Shevchenko and the image of a bull - favorite fish from the Sea of ​​Azov. Baranov, being the governor of the region, in 2014 himself led the defense, and also ordered to dig trenches to stop the advance of Russian and pro-Russian units

        - but it would be worth registering in a local psychiatric hospital (if it has not yet been closed).

    The German journalist claims that he saw the maneuvers of Russian troops "near the Ukrainian borders." According to him, "it resembles shots from an action movie."


    In original:
    ... So Moscow television at the end of April showed the culmination of a large-scale Russian exercise that took place near the territory of Ukraine.


    - Dear colleagues, let's not be like the Ukrainian media and "compose" variations of the retelling of the original text. Well, nowhere in the article does it say that he "saw" it.
    By the way, here is a translation of the description itself, just like the script for a Hollywood film about Russia:
    The frames and sound are like from some action movie. An entire armada takes a position off the coast of Crimea, armored personnel carriers roll out from the holds of the landing ships onto the sandy beach. Fire is being fired at targets on the ground. Multiple launch rocket systems, reminiscent of World War II Katyushas, ​​are firing in the direction of the Black Sea. Helicopters and fighters are hovering in the sky.


    But the fact that the entire article is built in the best traditions of propaganda is a fact. Half of the article was spent on depicting the local color and determination of non-brothers: from descriptions of the appearance of a shepherd, to pastoral sketches about a milkmaid and dill border guards freeing cows from the minimum wage set by them themselves.

    But the article also contains a lot of interesting nuances. About the same Berdyansk - about a catastrophic drop in the turnover of the local port with the given figures, about a halving of the staff of port workers, etc.
    the port's cargo turnover from 2016 to 2020 decreased from 3 to 461 tons.

    he saw all this on TV
    But before that he said that being at the border he himself observed it. A German reader (viewer) who is not frightened and ignorant of Russian affairs has the impression that Russia, 100 meters from the border, is roaring with all kinds of weapons and is preparing to seize the "unfortunate" Ukraine. Isn't that informational support for the Bandera regime? The descendants of the German fascists help the new Ukrainian fascists with information. Everything is natural.

    What I "liked": What a horror-horror-horror! Russia is conducting exercises for its troops on its own soil! This is a nightmare and a threat to world security!
    At the same time, blocking the access of a vital resource - water - to Crimea, which the skakuas continue to call "Ukrainian", is normal. This is not a crime against the civilian population, but an "advertising campaign" to return to the ride.

    Do not take it for bravado, BUT in 2008, being in Ibiza in one of the nightclubs of our small company, we got a neighborhood with young and apparently successful German majors who got drunk with Gray Goose vodka and gradually crossed the line of what was permitted and the border between the tables. Of course, we also didn’t indulge in lemonade, therefore, after what time, according to the old Russian tradition, I chose the healthiest and most rude one and, going up through all his druzhbanov, loudly and in Russian explained on my fingers that if once again at least someone crossed the border between the tables and even more will push our ladies with his shoulder, then they will know how the Germans were beaten and then he spoke even louder and with an expression under STALINGRAD. Calmly turned around and went to his own. Nemchura froze and bunched together at the far end of her desk, then these brave warriors complained to the administrators, knowing that we Russians had invited Russian-speaking guards to us, I explained the situation to them. After another couple of minutes, all this group, nodding their heads in agreement, set off in an incomprehensible direction, accompanied by guards. The further evening we enjoyed the absence of neighbors. Someone will say that the more cultured Germans simply did not get involved with Russian savages, but I think that this cultural code contains a deep fear, respect and a sense of guilt. Dozens of times I watched Europeans shake off in any situation when they just hear Russian speech.
