In search of common ground with the Russian Federation, things that are shared with it were often overlooked, and this was a mistake, the German politician noted.
“It has created white spots in our relationship with Russia. And it has led to mistakes in our relationship with Russia,” he said.
Among the mistakes, Klingbeil singled out a misunderstanding that the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin uses history to reinforce authoritarianism and great power foreign policy. He also called mistakes the failure of the tactics of change through the rapprochement and energy dependence of Germany on the Russian Federation.
“Last but not least, the interests of partners from Eastern and Central Europe were not sufficiently taken into account. This led to a massive loss of confidence,” he concluded.
