Moscow accuses Berlin of “anti-Russian hysteria”.
The Russian government has accused the federal government of inciting anti-Russian hostility. Berlin is endangering “decades of efforts by Russia and Germany to overcome post-war enmity”, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow said on Wednesday, on the occasion of the commemoration of Nazi Germany’s attack on the Soviet Union. German members of the government would stir up anti-Russian hysteria with almost daily attacks on our country.
In Germany there is currently one “anti-Russian propaganda campaign” driven, the ministry explained further. This led to an “unreasonable aggression bordering on mass psychosis” against Russians and Russian-speaking people in Germany.
The Foreign Ministry also accused NATO member Germany of expanding its military presence on Russia’s western borders. This “evokes memories of the most bitter times in Russian-German relations for our people, including the events preceding May 1945”. (AFP)
