Russian politician calls on Scholz and Macron to quit after the EU elections


Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has made some caustic comments following the results of the European elections and called for the resignation of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron.

“(The results) are a reflection of your inept policy of supporting the (B)andera authorities in… Ukraine at the expense of your own citizens, your idiotic economic and migration policies!” Medvedev posted a message on the social media platform X on Monday.

Stepan Bandera was a controversial Ukrainian nationalist, whose name is often used by Moscow to discredit Kiev’s political leadership by labeling them as fascist.

This is the time for Scholz and Macron to resign, Medvedev wrote. “To the ash heap of history!” he added.

Medvedev is currently deputy head of Russia’s National Security Council and was once seen as a potential liberal reformer during his presidency from 2008 to 2012.

However, since the start of Russia’s war against Ukraine, he has taken a tough stance and regularly made provocative statements against Kiev and the West.

The Kremlin took a more measured tone regarding the European Parliament election results.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said pro-European and pro-Ukrainian forces remain in power, but noted that right-wing parties are gaining ground.

Peskov stated that Russia is closely monitoring the situation and denied accusations of Russian interference in European politics. These allegations surfaced amid reports of Russian financial support for right-wing politicians before the elections.
