The Ministry of Defence of Germany revised the so-called White Paper – a basic document for decision-making in the field of national security. In the new edition, the Russian Federation is designated as a country threatening a new world order, DW reports.
“Russia is ready to advance its interests by violent means - as it happened in Crimea and eastern Ukraine - and unilaterally shift the boundaries guaranteed by the international law. Therefore, it represents a threat to the world order established in Europe after the Cold War,” reads the document.
The Kremlin has expressed concern about such amendments. Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told TASS that Germany simply does not understand Russia’s intentions.
“We are talking about the obvious lack of understanding of the Russian position, which is well known, consistent and aimed not at confrontation but creation of the atmosphere of cooperation and mutually beneficial cooperation on the European continent,” he said.
According to Peskov, the "misunderstanding" Russia’s policy "will not contribute to relations of mutual trust and mutual cooperation" and will lead to confrontational actions.
