Germany threatens to 'strike first' against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The latest news from the “Berliner Express”: “If there is no other way, you have to strike first,” said Federal Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen about a possible NATO war against Russia. “Therefore, the Bundeswehr must be brought up to speed as quickly as possible.”

Disproof

The story comes from Berliner Express, a site that clearly states it is satire.

It is not the first time that Contra Magasin spreads disinformation.
