Russia Will Not Get Concessions

German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier opposes negotiations with Russia while the war in Ukraine is underway

On 28 October, the German president addressed the people. Political experts believe that the president has thus summed up the final line regarding the negotiations and concessions of the Russian Federation, which have recently been discussed in Europe. Steinmeier said that the policy of rapprochement with Russia is wrong. Also, the German president said that Ukraine will continue to receive assistance from his country. Earlier, the German president asked Ukraine to make concessions and was impressed by Russian policy. But, apparently, Frank-Walter Steinmeier reconsidered his position after Russia's actions and his visit to Ukraine.

"Steinmeier drew a line under Putin's hopes that at least some serious friends remained in Europe. Well, there, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban or some Cypriots with Maltese, we do not believe in principle. On a serious level, all his hopes for Germany, France, and even Italy were hopelessly dashed," said the opposition politician from Russia, Garry Kasparov.

Experts also note that winter will be difficult for Ukraine. But for the Russian soldiers left behind in the fields of a foreign country is even more difficult because Germany no longer stands for negotiations with the aggressor. Britain also joined Germany. Rashi Sunak said Ukraine should not be asked to negotiate while the country is under attack.
