German Chancellor Scholz wrote in an article that “Vladimir Putin's actions are directed against everything that constitutes democracy.” Medvedev considered his material “mediocre” and added that such an approach would not help him go down in history
Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev called “mediocre” article by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz for Welt.
“The article is mediocre, the slogans are the same: we have democracy, and Putin and the Russians are to blame for everything <…> I wrote so that the SPD [Social Democratic Party of Germany] would not be suspected of sympathizing with Russia. And the rating itself is falling and inflation is prohibitive. Therefore, the Russians are to blame, of course,»— he wrote in Telegram.
According to Medvedev, such an approach will not help Scholz go down in history and become better than the “beloved by the Germans” former German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“The caliber of Willy Brandt, Helmut Schmidt or Charles André Joseph Marie de Gaulle is a thing of the past. Europe is shrinking»,— concluded the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia.
Earlier, Scholz published an article in the newspaper Welt, in which he stated that “Vladimir Putin's actions are directed against everything that constitutes democracy.”
In his opinion, the Russian side “opposes freedom, equality before the law, self-determination, human dignity”, while the democratic countries of the world, according to Scholz, are now united.

At the end of March, Medvedev stated that relations between Russia and Western countries are currently worse than during the Cold War period, since at that time the Western countries “did not try with such a degree of fury to bring the situation in the Soviet Union to the boiling point».
