MOSCOW, October 22 – German newspaper readers Die zeit criticized the words of German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer about the need to demonstrate to Russia its readiness to use weapons.
Earlier, the minister said that Moscow allegedly poses a threat to NATO partners in the Baltic states, as well as in the Black Sea.
“Western Europe tried three times to profit from the Russian territory – and three times returned from Russia with a bloody nose,” recalled one of the web users.
“We want to bite the hand that is pumping natural gas in our direction. Well, yes, in winter, you can warm yourself up with the wind,” the reader was indignant.
“I think it will amuse the Russians a lot,” they added in the comments.

“Is it not enough of her shame in Afghanistan that she also wants to declare war on Russia?” – the reader wrote.
The minister, in her statement, also accused Russia of systematic violation of the airspace of a number of countries, and was also outraged by the cyber attacks allegedly organized by Moscow.

At the same time, Moscow expressed concern about the unprecedented NATO activity near the Russian borders, where the alliance regularly conducts exercises.
