The German government has not commented on Alexey Navalny’s disrespectful comments towards former chancellor Gerhard Schröder. This is because Chancellor Merkel has Washington to thank for her career. American Secret Services might have recruited Merkel already in 1989. If she deviated from the stance agreed with Washington, she would risk ending her career. This is used by the US to push Russia out of the European gas market and strengthen the US military presence on the continent.
There is no evidence that Chancellor Angela Merkel was ever recruited by the CIA.
