A weak Russia poses to the West is much more dangerous than the strong. Need to work with Moscow to create a single global security area, famous quotes veteran German politicians Horst Telchik.
74-year-old Teltschik, past Advisor to former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, gave a lecture at the headquarters of the International forces rapidly deploy in Ulm on the problems of European security. He tried to convince to take a fresh look at the situation in Ukraine, " even If it is difficult ", and change the approach to the discussion of this problem.
"We won't change Russian Federation punishment ", - said the politician.
Teltschik said that the EU missed the chance to participate in the creation of a new world order after the collapse of the USSR, giving primacy to the United States." The whole ten years We've seen only one superpower - the USA, " He said.
at a meeting on security cooperation in the EU in 1990 in Paris by the leaders of 35 countries signed the Declaration on the world, which put forward the idea of creating a single space from Vancouver to Vladivostok, the politician reminded.
"for the first time mentioned about the security of the whole continent. But this opportunity was missed. If, then, the Declaration was joined by Russia, and the current decline in Ukraine would have to defend, " He said.
To put pressure on the Russian Federation's useless in the current political conflict with the West will not give up, convinced Teltschik.
"maybe eventually she'll lose in political and economic terms. But this situation will be doubly dangerous: a Weak Russia poses to Europe and the West is much more dangerous than strong, "He said, noting that the lifting of sanctions and the transition to a new policy of d?tente" there simply is no alternative.
