The Die Welt newspaper reports about it on Wednesday, November 28. "At a meeting of Committee on policy and safety of the EU in Brussels representatives of two countries supported confidence-building measures between parties of the conflict", - writes the edition. Austria presiding now in the EU the day before suggested to toughen sanctions against Russia. Estonia and Poland supported this initiative. In turn representatives of Germany and France said that sanctions do not promote confidence-building with Moscow. However the cochairman of the German party the Union 90/green Annalena Berbok urged to refuse construction of the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany Nord Stream 2. "Due to the brazen violation of international law by Russia concerning Ukraine, this project needs to be winded down for the political reasons", - she told in an interview to the newspaper.
