German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel is convinced that Europe will have to help Ukraine restore the Donbas. The official made a corresponding statement in his speech at the opening of the conference "Conventional Arms Control fit for the 21st Century" in Berlin, DW reports.
Gabriel noted that Europe could help, for example, in restoring water supply and sanitation systems. Furthermore, the German official warned against the threat of a new arms race:
“Instead of peaceful coexistence, the threat of a new arms race is arising. Unlike the previous era, when such an arms race took place between Russia and NATO, this time the spiral of arming can cover the whole world.”
The minister also stressed that now the world is talking about the build-up of weapons in China, India, the Pacific, America, and some countries in Africa.
