YEKATERINBURG, the Urals, December 9 /TASS/. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Tuesday that the most serious military confrontation in Ukraine has been prevented.

“I believe that we have managed to avert the most serious military confrontation in Ukraine. I hope that my forecast will be proven in the next several days or weeks,” Steinmeier, the honorary doctor of the Yekaterinburg-based Urals Federal University, said in a lecture delivered to the University students.

The German foreign minister also spoke about Russia's relations with Germany.

Steinmeier said the threat of a new iron curtain still remains and called for exerting a great deal of effort to prevent that scenario under the current circumstances.

“I hope we will manage to overcome the split if both sides demonstrate good will. The trend of alienation can be stopped if more and more people from our countries meet and talk to each other,” Steinmeier stressed.

According to German Ambassador to Russia Rudiger von Fritsch, the German embassy in Russia is issuing as many visas to Russian nationals as possible. “There have been no changes in the visa policy,” the German ambassador said.
