"Poland and Germany have the same view on the situation in Ukraine, including the issue of sanctions against Russia". He recalled the intervention by the Weimar Triangle foreign ministers in Ukraine last February, "It was the most effective intervention to be undertaken by foreign politicians in Kyiv. It allowed us to move on to the next stage". The chief of German diplomacy added, "Our countries can shoulder responsibility for Europe".
Grzegorz Schetyna said that Ukraine has recently called for the renovation of talks in the Weimar format, that is, with the participation of France, Germany and Poland.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday in Moscow, said that the conflict in eastern Ukraine was very far from solution.
"But despite this, we must continue to work on the possibilities of the conflict settlement. To prevent the spiral of violence from untwisting to a degree that we will have to endure greater military confrontation again," said Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
The German foreign minister also called on not to abandon the Minsk peace agreement, despite the defeat.
