Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Russia and the West will have to take a further difficult step - unpleasant talks over what principles should govern the resolution of similar conflicts. But is such a conversation possible after the experience of the Balkans?

RIGHT! It's too late...and Russians told you not to make that precedent with Kosovo. But arrogant West (USA) wouldn't listen. Do not open Pandora's Box-they said. But you did...now we got it!

A clearly pro-Russian declaration by the German Foreign Affairs ministry, and a more moderate statement by the Chancellery.

Is it so? If so then looks like Germans may be the only serious players on diplomatic field...
