The German side does not see it as something consciously directed against her. But we know that we all have a lot of emotion. Sometimes emotions need to hold back and choose the other way – for example, political,” he said.
The Minister noted that the problem is not just the content of what was said by the German Ambassador, but in how it was said in the above comparisons, in the tone.
“But I want to emphasize that what is happening does not affect the context of Ukrainian-German relations. We know the German position. I work very closely with all members – not only those responsible for foreign policy in Berlin, know their position”, – explained Klimkin.
