Were not prisoners: German FM berates Trump for Russia captives remark

Published time: 11 Jul, 2018 15:46

Germany is not a captive of anyone, neither Russia nor the US, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in response to US President Donald Trump’s description of his country as a ‘captive’ of Russia.

“We are not prisoners, neither of Russia nor of the United States,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Brussels. “We are one of the guarantors of the free world and that will stay that way.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel made a similarly dismissive response to Trump’s statement, saying that her country “can make our independent policies and make independent decisions.” She added that as a person born in East Germany, which was subordinate to Moscow in major decisions, the current situation is much better.

Trump, who is also in Brussels for the two-day NATO summit, suggested that Germany should stop buying Russian natural gas, claiming that the trade amounts to Russia controlling Germany.

1. So Russia invades Poland.

Germany needs Russian gas or they will freeze to death.

What do they do? Freeze to death? Or let the Russians do what they want?
