According to Sigmar Gabriel, Kiev made an attempt to draw Germany into the war.
From the statement of the former head of German diplomacy on the TV channel N-TV (Germany):
We must not allow Ukraine to draw Germany into war. And the Ukrainian authorities have tried to do it.
After that, Gabriel decided to attempt to take a “neutral” position, stating that Russia had implemented an “act of violation of international law”. At the same time, Gabriel was unable to argue his words against the background of the fact that Russia defended its borders, and the Ukrainian armored boats violated these borders without reacting to repeated warnings.
Recall that earlier there was information about the transfer of several Ukrainian sailors in the detention center in the Russian capital. Sailors who were slightly injured during the incident were discharged from the Kerch hospital.
In Ukraine, the martial law regime continues to operate, introduced in those regions that are inhabited mainly by Russian-speaking citizens.
