The government of Angela Merkel is “doing too little” to raise the level of relations between Moscow and Berlin to the proper level. About the Agency RIA Novosti said the Deputy head of the Russian-German group of MPs, MP Gregor Gysi.
According to him, cooperation between Germany and Russia for many years is in deadlock, not corresponding neither necessary nor possible level. “Instead, the Federal government increasingly acts in the Wake of the US administration, which is counting on the escalation of the arms race and geo-strategic policy of containment towards Russia”, — he explained.
May 4, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell outraged “unthinkable” policy of Europe towards Russia. He criticized the indecisiveness of Europe in terms of the position to Moscow. According to him, a few decades ago European countries would not allow Russia to commit those actions that country is taking now.
In February, Merkel said that Europe expected other relations with Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin wall. According to her, in relations with Moscow it is on the side of the President of Ukraine, but “strategically, Europe has no right to sever relations with Russia.”
