MOSCOW, June 6 /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov hopes that the German government will carefully weigh all "pros" and "cons" prior to including Russia to a list of threats.
"As for the situation with Germany, I understand that the report was submitted to the German government but has not yet been approved and is still to be considered. I hope that the coalition government will weigh all the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ and more importantly weigh all the facts, which could be interpreted as Russia’s preparation for an aggression against the European Union and NATO," Lavrov said in an interview published on the Russian Foreign Ministry website.
He noted that demonizing Russia had become a modern trend in the European Union.
A new edition of the German White Book, which the German leadership uses as guidance for making security policy decisions, portrays Russia as a threat to the world order, which was established in Europe after the Cold War.
"Russia is ready to advance its interests by violent methods and unilaterally move the borders guaranteed by international law. That is why it is posing a threat to the post-Cold War world order in Europe," the German White Book said.
