German Foreign Minister: A return to the G8 is possible only if the Russian Federation respects the integrity of Ukraine

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier refused to comply with the demand of the leader of the "left" Gregor Geesy to invite President Vladimir Putin to the G-7 summit, which is scheduled for June.

German Foreign Minister: A return to the G8 is possible only if the Russian Federation respects the integrity of Ukraine


“Europe is not interested in prolonged isolation of Russia, but after the annexation of the Crimea, it is impossible to behave as if nothing happened. A return to the G-8 is possible only if Russia respects the integrity of Ukraine and implements the Minsk agreements, ”the minister said. RT.

Steinmeier also commented on the visit to Moscow of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, noting that “all discussions” on this issue seem to be “too nervous and excited”. According to him, “the insignificant results of Tsipras’s visit will strengthen Greece’s understanding that the country will not be able to do without Europe.”

The German Foreign Minister also warned against the escalation of the conflict in the east of Ukraine, noting that the ceasefire continues to be violated, and the clashes in Mariupol and Donetsk have demonstrated that "the threat of the escalation of the conflict has not yet been completely overcome."

In addition, the politician voiced the official position of Berlin regarding the annexation of the Crimea to the Russian Federation: "Our position on this issue is very clear: the annexation of the Crimea remains a violation of international law."

          A simple question arises, "Do we need it? What did this eight without Russia turn into? Seven, or rather, excuse me for prison terminology, into six."
          Well, she’s there. Well, they’re going to talk about something and what? It’s not really who is listening. So the return of the Russian Federation to the Eight is possible only when the West recognizes at least the equal position of the Russian Federation and other leading countries. And in this situation , already this will not be enough. Russia, authorized instead of decline, has become stronger. And it will be even stronger. And now you need to talk to the Kremlin very carefully.

              The banking system of Russia MUST be nationalized and serve the whole people, and not a handful of Greforschilds to rob our people. Loan interest under the ban. Private banking usury is prohibited.

              And do not forget that the communists in the last century twice destroyed our country - in 1917 and in 1991.

                I put you a plus for the first paragraph.
                And about “the communists in the last century destroyed our country twice in 1917 and in 1991” - well, it’s not true. What did the communists destroy in 1917? The February revolution was done by liberals, not communists. October Revolution? So at that time there was no power in the country at all. The Provisional Government did not control the army, did not have the support of the people, and in general it was well, very similar to the modern government of Urkaina. Or for the Yeltsin year in 1998. The government itself, the country itself.
                In that situation, the Lenin government was the only one who had an IDEA. Therefore, the people supported the Bolsheviks.
                1991 year. Is it Gorbachev, Yakovlev, Shivarnadze, Yeltsin - the Communists? I would like to hear how I.V. would appreciate these characters Stalin. THEY ARE NOT COMMUNISTS, THEY ARE SALES. In this case, membership in the CPSU is a screen, and the content does not correspond to the idea and content.
                The best of the best communists died at the front. The idea did not become worse, did not become worthy performers. The worst went to the rear, survived, gave birth (Gorbachev, Yakovlev, Shivarnadze, Yeltsin, Kasparov, Svanidze, Makarevich, etc.).

                  The civil war of 1918-1923 was a direct consequence of the October Revolution. In a civil war, our country lost over ten million people. The revolution and subsequent events led to the complete disruption of the fifth economy in the world.
                  And then, you imagine what would happen to our country if it were not Stalin who came to power, but the Trotskyists ???

                  In 1991, where were the remaining 17 million communists? That's it.
                  Do not exaggerate the role of the Communists, the miraculous heroes of Suvorov, Ermak, Khabarov and other famous and nameless heroes of our country were not communists.
                  Read about our heroes http://topwar.ru/15663-russkie-ne-sdayutsya-ili-pochemu-rossiya-pobezhdaet.html

                  I am for justice. And I will not tire of recalling that the Communists twice destroyed our country so as not to repeat such mistakes in the future.

    One would think it was not a violation of international law:
    1. NATO aggression against Yugoslavia, the bombing of Serbia, the capture of Kosovo and the establishment of a NATO military base there and the murder of Milosevic.
    2. NATO aggression against Iraq, occupation and assassination of Saddam.

    Uncle knows a lot about diplomacy, that's why he says so. When Russia was invited to the G7, the format became G8. With this they wanted to revive the moribund format. But the format stopped working anyway, and with the departure of Russia, it became simply dead. And Russia clearly did not live up to their expectations. "It began to misbehave." In a changing world, seven or even eight countries have little to do. Now the future belongs to the countries 20. Therefore, an obviously impossible condition was set for Russia.

    The Germans just touch me. They demand from their blue Foreign Ministry some decisive movements in the GXNUMX! As if he can do it. They really lay claim to the role of an equal partner at a time when the Americans themselves practically out loud admitted that they did not consider the EU countries as such. Only subordinates. The Frenchman has already understood that their opinion is not interested in amers and wiped off. In fact, the GXNUMX format is not viable, only bilateral relations between Russia and the United States are relevant, which has already been demonstrated by the Minsk agreements. You can pay attention to the Germans when they have the opportunity to make independent decisions. About Crimea, they themselves admit - this is Russia, and this is forever.
