Germany welcomes Putin's 'constructive tone' on Ukraine

Published: 05.08.14, 15:53 / Israel News

Germany's foreign minister welcomed on Thursday Russian President Vladimir Putin's call on pro-Moscow separatists in Ukraine to delay a vote on secession but also warned events in the east of the country were taking on a momentum of their own.


"We are perhaps at a crucial point," Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in a statement. While the situation in Ukraine remained critical, he
said there was a chance diplomacy could stop an escalation of violence and a loss of control in eastern Ukraine.


"I welcome the constructive tone that President Putin struck after his meeting with the head of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). What was discussed in Moscow must now be translated into action immediately." (Reuters)
