BERLIN, January 9. /TASS/. It is important to prevent a further slide of Russian-German relations that, very unfortunately, is continuing, Vladimir Grinin, the Russian ambassador to Germany said on Friday at an annual New Year reception at the embassy in Berlin.
The reception brought together Soviet veterans of WW II, veterans of the Siege of Leningrad, workers of the Soviet home front, representatives of German business quarters, and German public associations.
Ambassador Grinin believes that the task of the day is to breathe new life in the realization of the fact that the situation in Europe and throughout the world has for centuries depended in many ways on interrelations between the Russians and Germans.
He pointed out in this connections a notable role that the fellow-Russian living in Germany play as an element of linkage between the two countries.
Grinin also stressed an apparent increase in the activity and efficiency of various associations and organizations of the ethnic Russian community in Germany last year. They held a record number of pan-German events that were meaty and targeted at achieving results.
“This testifies to the process of a positive development of the Russian-speaking community in Germany and that’s a factor that is most highly welcome,” Grinin said.
