Russian defense Minister Sergei Shoigu remembered the Germany of the Second world war and was advised “ask your grandparents” about talking with Russia from a position of strength. Thus, he responded to the words of the head of the defense Ministry of Germany Ursula von der Leyen, who offered to talk with Russia from a position of strength. It should be noted that the statement of the German Minister was made in April 2018.
“Speaking specifically about Germany, before speaking such words, we must return to history. And after what Germany did to our country, I think there’s another two hundred years would on this occasion it is not necessary to speak,” – said Shoigu, noting that I would not like to say “harder and rougher”, writes Lenta.
He noted that those Germans who do not read history, can “ask the grandparents”.
“As far as talking from a position of strength: again – go back in history. If you do not read – ask the grandparents how to talk with Russia from a position of strength. They’ll probably be able to tell you,” threatened the Minister.
In the network, bravado Shoigu did not appreciate, reminding the Minister that Russia is not their own war against the Nazis in world war II, and advised it is better to ask “German grandparents how to build for 70 years the main economy of Europe, not to destroy the country, to Rob people and lose all allies.”
