I do not know how sincere the offer is...and it has yet to be made officially.
But even assuming it is a sincere offer, the CIA can get to him fairly easily in Germany, kill or kidnap him, and there wouldn't be much Germany could do.
OTOH, he's hard to reach in Russia. And even if they could reach him, the CIA would have to be VERY bold to kill someone on Russian soil.
Stay safe Ed, and trust no one. If German lawmakers want to interview you, let them come to Moscow and do it there.
