โ€œIt is this awareness that makes multilateralism the cornerstone of European foreign policy,โ€ he said. Furthermore, Maas remarked that “dark clouds” are gathering over the relationship with Russia, which must โ€œcontribute more to clarifyโ€ the Navalny case.

The Kremlin opposer, after being poisoned while he was on a plane and receiving first medical cares in an hospital in Siberia, has been airlifted to a Berlin hospital and is trying to recover.
