Pushkov commented on trump's words about protecting Germany from Russia

The Federation Council member Alexei Pushkov commented on the words of US President Donald trump, doubting the need to protect Germany from Russia.

Pushkov said that such doubts are justified, as threats to Germany, as in the whole of Europe, from Russia do not exist. According to the Senator, the statements of the danger from Moscow do mostly politicians from Poland and the Baltic States, in order to "increase its value".

"The United States can safely withdraw all of its troops out of Europe," Pushkov wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, the us leader expressed bewilderment as to why the US needs to protect Germany from Russia when the Berlin buys from Moscow energy.
