    Bavarian prime minister Horst Seehofer just came back from a three-day-trip to Moscow and was welcomed back in Germany by a trolling campaign. The reason: Seehofer, who is a strong supporter of Angela Merkel and who’s CSU party is governing together with Merkel’s CDU and the Social Democrats in Berlin, made a promise in Moscow to work on lifting anti-Russian sanctions.

    At the same time the CSU is conducting a social media campaign with pictures of Horst Seehofer and Andreas Scheuer, the general secretary of the party. Seehofer is presented with the sentence: “We don’t want a republic, where left forces and multiculturalism are dominating.” Scheuer is quoted with: “The German passport is not junk goods.” The sentences are in Russian. The purpose of this campaign is to win over ethnic Russian and Russian-German voters who had deserted to the AfD party during the last elections.

    Markus Frohnmaier, youth leader of Germany’s Euroskeptic AfD party, called Seehofer’s mission to Moscow and the CSU-campaign “bizarre”. In a statement he stressed that in Germany everybody knows that “Seehofer made Angela Merkel’s policy possible by his loyal support”.

    Seehofer’s CSU indeed supported Merkel’s politics of “open borders” and her uncontrolled mass migration agenda. Moreover, the CSU also supports the anti-Russian sanctions policy of the German government.

    Frohnmaier remarked: “If the Bavarian prime minister is serious about changing our government’s policy, he must simply act and not just talk.” Markus Frohnmaier has been criticizing the politics of Western sanctions against Russia since 2014 and has visitied Donetsk personally in 2015 for a conference in support of rights for the Donbass people.

    Frohnmaier recommended that Seehofer consult a psychiatrist, “for a proper check-up”. Frohnmaier noted: “Someone who while visiting foreign countries frequently says the contrary of what he really does at home, should get his brain function checked.”
