The Chairman of the Free democratic party of Germany, Christian Lindner, called for the return of Russia in the “big eight” under certain conditions. About it reports DW.
“It is better to talk with the Russian President Vladimir Putin than on it,” he said in an interview with the magazine Focus, published on Saturday, September 9.
“If Russia refuses military exercises that threaten our Eastern European partners, this would be an occasion to revive the G8, even initially in the format of G7 + 1. Putin should be given the opportunity to leave the dead end of escalation,” explained Lindner.
