Gizi is sure that too little is being done to improve relations between Berlin and Moscow, and new sanctions only worsen the situation. He believes that the end of the sanctions should be a signal for an active German-Russian dialogue. Sanctions just harm European the economy and impede the development of international relations.
Instead of focusing on German and European interests in relation to Russia, the federal government is increasingly active in the wake of the US administration
- Gizi said in an interview RIA News.
Gizi emphasized that security in Europe and around the world is simply impossible to achieve without the participation of Russia, and even more so "in the fight against it." And now, even bilateral cooperation "does not meet either the necessary or the possible level for the good development of both countries." And the Merkel government is not doing anything about this.
