Should a long term ceasefire in the Donbass become a reality, Europe should help Ukraine with the restoration of the Donbass region, said German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel.

In the opinion of the head of the German foreign ministry, assistance is possible if a long truce is established in the Donbass. Gabriel noted that Europe could help, for example, in restoring water supply and sanitation systems.

In addition, the German official warned against the deployment of a new arms race.

“Instead of peaceful coexistence, the danger of a new arms race exists.”

“Wherever we look – China, India, the Pacific, America, parts of Africa, Ukraine – we are faced with the possibility of a new arms race between major regional powers” stressed the German minister.
