    Uwe Sauermann is a well-known reporter who, together with his team, reported from war zones around the world. Often – almost always – the United States has been a party to the conflict. The conflict has in turn affected his homeland Germany, and also the rest of Europe, in various ways. Mainly through increased migratory pressure from the war-torn regions, but also through the United States pointing to the conflicts as an argument that Europe needs its “protection” and soldiers on European soil.

    Several personalities are interviewed in the documentary about the extent of US influence. Steffen Kotré, Member of Parliament for Alternatives for Germany, has been working on issues related to Germany’s energy imports and the Nord Stream 2 project. This a project that the US would like to torpedo.

    The FPÖ’s former foreign affairs manager Johannes Hübner is considered an expert on international relations. He pointed out that the US argument that Europe needs its protection from Russia is rather absurd, already considering that Germany, France and Britain have defence budgets of around 50 billion dollars each, which can be measured against Russia’s 65 billion. The US defence budget is about $732 billion a year.

    Former US diplomat Michael Springmann, author of the book Goodbye Europe. Hello, Chaos? Merkel’s Migrant Bomb, talks about the personal interests of various American politicians in US conflicts, not least the Biden family’s economic interests in Ukraine. He called the president’s son Hunter Biden a “criminal”.

    The Russian comedy duo Vovan and Lexus meanwhile revealed through a new prank that the American state-funded organization National Endowment of Democracy (NED) was the US tool to support the protest movement in Belarus which in the autumn of 2020 was out to overthrow President Alexander Lukashenko, the news channel RT reported. By claiming to be two leaders in the Western-backed opposition in Belarus, the duo managed to get a conversation with people in NED’s highest leadership.

    The NED’s representatives, CEO Carl Gerschman and Nina Ognianova, responsible for NED’s work in Belarus and Russia, revealed that they wanted to bring about regime change in both countries.
