The German magazine Spiegel Online in the announcement of Putin’s visit to Berlin, which was sent Wednesday to subscribers, noted that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has to solve a complex problem when it tries to invoke otvetstvennosti the Russian leader for a possible violation of international law. The fact is that the confidence rating of Putin in Germany is not inferior to the rating of Merkel, the newspaper notes.
Spiegel also stresses the amazing fact regarding the attitude of the Germans to the «great powers» of the USA and Russia. A hundred thousand protest against the trade agreement with the United States contrasts with the complete lack of similar demonstrations against Russia when the Berlin accuses Moscow of its policies in Ukraine and Syria.
It should be noted that a number of German media have called the current visit of Vladimir Putin «political sensation.»
Recall that the Russian President has not visited Germany since the day of joining of Crimea to Russia.
