“With regard to the outcome of these elections in terms of German-German relations and Russia’s interests, I will start with Russia’s interests, so that our relations maintain continuity. They still differ for the better compared to Russia’s relations with other EU and NATO members.”
The senator also assured that, provided that the politicization of trade and economic cooperation between Russia and Germany ceases, there are chances for an intensification of the business partnership. “Because the options for cooperation that Russia offers are always mutually beneficial.
