Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the head of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, avows that Europe is far from being able to offer a diplomatic solution to the conflict in the Donbas. Mainly, because politicians do not know the purpose of the Kremlin's aggression in Ukraine.
Steinmeier believes it is the Minsk negotiations the fate of Europe depends on. If any mistake is made, it will take years to correct it.
Unlike the United States, Germany categorically refuses to supply weapons to Georgia, hoping to find a diplomatic solution.
Both Ukrainian and Russian Presidents say they do not want war and are ready to cease hostilities and draw a line of demarcation. However, Europe says it is unclear how much the words of the leaders of the warring countries meet their actions.
