Medvedev: German anti-Russia narrative more interesting than 'Dark'
The deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev says Germany lacks sovereignty and that most of its important decisions are made by the American deep state.
Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, mocked German politics on his Telegram channel, where he noted that the coup attempt by the "Citizens of the Reich" in Germany is evidence of a "hereditary disease of the whole model of government in Germany."
Commenting on the incident where "right-wing conspirators have decided to stage a coup," Medvedev noted that "the Germans clearly have a shortage of blood sausage," adding that "there's only liverwurst everywhere" referencing former Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany, Andriy Melnyk title for German Chancellor Olaf Schulz.
Medvedev said the staged coup "is a good reason to add live blood to the liver sausage of the current chancellor," adding that "Scholz is clearly benefiting from such a U-turn," because "He is both a cook and a participant in the meal."
Furthermore, Medvedev mocked the narrative that German media is putting forward. The deputy chairman said:
"Naturally, the link to the Russians is hinted at. What else could it be? All evil plots, world wars, destructive earthquakes and deadly epidemics come from us. Proud though we are, we haven't succeeded yet. We'll keep trying Nemetland. What if it becomes a monarchy again?"
On a more serious note, Medvedev said "these half-baked conspirators are right: Germany does not have full sovereignty on its soil."
He referenced the latest German decisions regarding "energy, industry, and defense," and noted that these decisions have been made by the "deep American state," and "not by a liveried sausage or even by Washington elders in fragmentary dementia."
Medvedev here hinted that these decisions are in the best interests of a long-term American strategy that neither Scholz nor Biden have the ability to make.
Moreover, he stressed that despite the fact that "this is pure provocation and conspiracy," Germany will blame Russia.
As such, he asked people to get their popcorn ready since "the thriller will be more interesting than the notorious German series Dark."
Germany arrests far-right group planning coup
Federal prosecutors reported that German police conducted nationwide searches and detained 25 people, including members of a "terror organization," who were thought to be plotting an attack on the parliament.
Prosecutors stated in a statement that members of the "Citizens of the Reich" (Reichsbuerger) movement are suspected of "having made concrete preparations to force their way into the German parliament with a small armed group."
As part of the operation, searches are being conducted in more than 130 houses, offices, and other locations.
Extremists anticipated that some security personnel would show their support for the group, which would result in a coup, as per the statement.
Prosecutors added in a statement that the suspects have formed "a terrorist group by the end of November 2021 at the latest, which had set itself the goal of overthrowing the existing state order in Germany and replacing it with their own kind of state."
Of the 25 arrests, two were overseas in Italy and Austria.
Neo-Nazis, conspiracy theorists, and gun enthusiasts who disagree with the validity of the contemporary German republic make up the Reichsbuerger movement.
The Reichsbuerger, once looked down upon as misfits and oddballs, have grown more radical in recent years and are now viewed as a significant security danger.
According to federal authorities, members of the freshly formed terror group are former soldiers.
"The accused are united by a deep rejection of state institutions and the free, democratic basic order of the Federal Republic of Germany," they said.
The suspects were aware that their plan "could only be realized by using military means and violence against state representatives," they added.
