Ouch. The Kremlin certainly wasn’t expecting that one.
After Russia’s latest display of disregard for territorial sovereignty, Germany’s foreign minister Heiko Maas has bravely stepped forward and told the roughhouse renegade of a nation that it must now respect international law again. Or else. Or something.
To achieve this, Germany and its European allies need clear principles and a “true dialogue” on common security in Europe, Maas added.
Wow. Dialogue. That’s never been tried before. This guy is the greatest thing since Bismarck. No, not the herring. That chancellor dude.
“The aim must be that Russia sticks to international rules again and that it does not violate the territorial sovereignty of its neighbors.”
PS: The EU ITSELF would have done the lecturing but it’s too busy trying to get rid of daylight savings time. Actually, it’s not all that busy anymore. It just failed at that attempt. Kind of like it always does at practically everything it tries. But to be fair, it was way too ambitious a project for the EU to handle in just one generation.
