Limonov: Russians, Learn 'Stop! Hands up!' in German

The famous Russian writer and left wing political activist comments on German threats to punish Russia for Syria

Chancellor Angela Merkel proposed new sanctions against Russia to force Moscow to change course in Syria.

This time they want to punish us for our behavior, not in the Donbass but in Syria; for the fact that we help Syrian troops to liberate Aleppo, not from NATO or the American army, but from Jabhat al-Nusra, which is now called "The Support Front for the People of Al-Sham".

Mikhail Gorbachev the Marked One, who organized the German reunification in October 1989, is still alive. Gorby, what have you done? I think you committed a crime back then! But you are not in prison, just idling away your time in the Gorbachev Foundation. 

Not having a chance to hit German interests, I will refrain from useless curses. But I’ll do my best to make my country remember Germany's misbehavior in October 2016. Never trust these Fritz again. Learn the German phrases our grandfathers used during World War II: Stop! Hands up! (German – “Halt! Hände hoch!”).

In 1945, Americans and Russians discussed what to do with Berlin. The American side proposed vindictively to make Berlin suffer Carthage’s fate – to destroy it, plough it up and plant it with weeds. Soviet humanists, mumbling something about united proletarians of the world, saved Berlin. You can look through the articles of Fyodor Gladkov in the newspaper Pravda and in the New York Times on that day.

Next time, if we have to decide their fate (and I’m sure we will have to), we won’t persuade migrants to leave Berlin alone.
