Medvedev rejects EU leaders: “European politicians in decline: Draghi is not Berlusconi”

Medvedev is still talked about. The former Russian president and current deputy head of the Security Council attacked the leaders of the European Union: “The level of Western politicians has dropped to a low level and I have seen it with my own eyes over the past 20 years,” he wrote on Telegram. “In Europe, for example, there is not even a trace of political figures of the level of Helmut Kohl, Jacques Chirac or Margaret Thatcher and no offense to anyone, but it is clear to everyone that Mario Draghi is not Silvio Berlusconi, and Olaf Scholz is not it’s Angela Merkel ».

«The great leaders of the past – he says Medvedev – they have never been russophobes, but have been replaced by a new generation of weak people who conventionally call themselves technocrats. Some of them are quite qualified specialists, but nothing more. And here is the problem! Such people are able to correctly formulate an idea, give precise instructions to assistants. But I am not able to take responsibility ».

Medvedev’s attack

But the attack he continues: «They try to hide, to mislead, to talk about the economic situation, even about climate change but they don’t make a decision. Or they take it with a catastrophic delay. And this is already a total problem, ”she explained. “A true politician is not afraid to make decisions. Yes, he can make mistakes and even lose. But it will be a dignified defeat, ”he continued Medvedev, according to which a politician must also “make an unpopular decision and take responsibility for it”. The “new generation” of European politicians, according to the former Russian president, is “far” from that of a few decades ago. «Would the current president of Ukraine show up for a meeting with President Chirac wearing a green shirt? Obviously not. Absurd », he wrote referring to Zelensky. “The problem of the degeneration of European politics is mainly due to the fact that it has become a pale voice of support for American soloists – continued Medvedev – Charles de Gaulle could oppose any American president, while now European leaders do not think about the future,” but they are limited only by their electoral prospects. And even the new American leaders do not shine for brilliant ideas and mental stability ».

On the day of the visit to Kiev of the leaders Draghi, Scholz and Macron, Medvedev had directed another attack on the leaders who had left to go to Zelensky: «European eaters of frogs, liver sausages and spaghetti like to visit Kiev with zero utility. They will promise EU membership and old howitzers, lick their chops with horilka (a Ukrainian vodka, ed.) And go home by train, like 100 years ago. Everything is alright. But it will not bring Ukraine closer to peace. Time flows”.
