Vladimir Putin could soon become a "new patron" of Germany instead of the USA, said the Swiss military specialist, Director of the Institute for strategic studies, W?denswil albert Stachel German edition.
In the current circumstances It seems " slightly possible ", says the specialist, but in the long term Germany or even the whole of Europe can turn to Russia." Germany may recognize Putin as a new patron instead to continue to rely on the US, " He added.
"why It's bound to seem unimaginable? In history there were moments when Russia and Germany signed the Treaty, "says Stachel, stating that the current political order of things in the world" is unlikely to stay this way forever ".
Stahel believes that a similar scenario has already been discussed in government circles in Germany." As soon as Germany will feel the danger to its national interests, it will be able to go for a course correction, " explained a military expert.
From the perspective of Stages, USA now not strong enough to "protect" Europe. In addition to "effective deterrence" Russia in the European Union, Washington currently lacks " neither funds nor sufficient support among residents."
He doesn't know exactly when it describes the script has the ability to be implemented. According to Stages, It depends on the development of events in Ukraine." This can happen in a year or in 5 years, but reflection on such information is already there, " he said.
in his vision, that Germany plays a key role in the confrontation between the U.S. and Russia.
If Germany will in reality make a turn to Russia, It will mark a "gradual expulsion of the US from continental Europe," says Stachel. In other European countries are watching to see what decisions are made in Berlin, and most Possibly, will follow the example of Germany, believes the Swiss specialist.
Stachel also clarified recent statements made about the deployment of NATO into Eastern Europe troops as well as tanks and other heavy equipment As if to prevent "potential aggression" from Russia.
The Swiss specialist believes that This decision is "meaningless From a combat point of view, which He regards As "political sedative" for the countries of Eastern Europe from the USA.
