Dmitry Medvedev, former prime minister and president of Russia and now deputy chairman of the country’s Security Council, warns that Germany is preparing to attack Russia.

“All attempts to present the talks of the Bundeswehr officers as a simple game about missiles and tanks were malicious lies. Germany is preparing for war with Russia”, he wrote on Telegram.

Medvedev is referring to the leaked recordings, reported by The Nordic Times and others, in which senior German military officers appear to discuss the possibility of blowing up the Crimean bridge, while doing so in a way that would allow Chancellor Olaf Scholz to credibly deny German involvement in the attacks.

The conversation also discusses the use of plainclothes agents, the supply of German long-range missiles and their ability to take out Russian targets and infrastructure, and how much Germany can actually help Ukraine without “crossing the red line” of direct military involvement.

“No option can be ruled out”

Medvedev and several other Russian officials see the recordings as proof that Germany is preparing to go to war with Russia, and that it is no longer “just” about supplying weapons and other equipment.

Recently, French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron announced that he was considering sending troops to fight against Russia.

– No option should be ruled out. We will do everything to ensure that Russia does not win the war, he declared.

Sweden’s Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson (M) claims that sending Swedish soldiers to the war is “not relevant at the moment”.
