“The news of negotiations between Germany and Russia on Ukraine looks like a failed attempt by re-constructors of history to remind the world of the infamous Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact,” Klimkin told Interfax-Ukraine on Thursday.
In his opinion, the world has changed. “Germany has changed. Mrs. Merkel understands as nobody else that we live in the 21st, not the 20th century. And decisions must correspond to their time, rather than drag the world into the past,” he said.
Klimkin said that despite all rumors and speculation, Germany had consistently supported Ukraine in its fight against terrorism in the east of the country.
