Russian cartoonist Sergey Elkin has published a new drawing on recent angry remarks by President Donald trump at the NATO summit on the occasion of the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2”.
A cartoon posted on the Facebook page of DW.
It depicts German Chancellor Angela Merkel that the Russian President Vladimir Putin threatens using the hose as a weapon. The hose is attached to a gas cylinder on the back of Putin, which reads “Nord stream – 2”. Trump, looking at it, shouts “Attention! Captured a hostage!”.
Earlier, trump criticized Germany because of the support of the authorities of the project of the pipeline “Nord stream-2”, called Berlin “a prisoner of Russia.” According to him, the US considers “highly inappropriate” situation in which the United States bear most of the costs for the protection of Europe from Russia while Germany, Europe’s largest economy, is implementing gas projects with Moscow.
