Steinmeier called Russia’s invasion of Ukraine “the worst crisis since the fall of the Iron Curtain.”
“Everything that we all worked for, including within the G7, is destroyed (by this invasion),” he said.
He specified that the “idea of cooperative security” had virtually ceased to exist, and warned that the political map of Europe would continue to change, and that everyone would have to be prepared for new conflicts.
Steinmeier believes that “the risks of a dangerous escalation are enormous,” not only in Russia, but also in “increasingly complex relations with China.” In such a situation, Europe “should be able to defend itself.”
He also called for a “decisive rebuff” to political populists who use the crisis situation to “operate in political disputes not with arguments, but with disinformation or even violence,” including with the support of Russia.
