Former Minister of foreign Affairs of Austria Karin Kneissl rebuked the EU in that it did not support the idea of Vladimir Putin.
it was about the speech of the Russian leader in the German Bundestag soon after the terrorist attacks in USA on 11 September 2001. Then Vladimir Putin has called on Europe to abandon the patterns of the cold war and to cooperate with Moscow as an equal partner.
According to Kneisl, on the President’s speech then no one responded properly. And instead of having to make important decisions together with Russia, Europe is only wasted time.
