Pushkov says the US is trying to get payments from Germany to the NATO budget in every possible way

Pompeo’s recent statement on Berlin’s stance on “Russian threats” was commented on by Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov.

He voiced his position on Twitter.

“A shout from Pompeo to Berlin – “what a horror, Germany, apparently does not seem to consider Russia a serious threat, but the US does” – aims not only at getting payments from the FRG to the NATO budget, but also at restraining the “presumptuous” Germans. After all, they want to put Nord Stream-2 into operation!” – Pushkov wrote.
