The leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and Minister of Defense of Germany, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, has proposed the adoption of new measures against Russia, after the alleged assassination commissioned by a Georgian citizen in Berlin, as reported on Sunday the 'Bild am Sonntag'.

“The Russian side has to start clarifying this crime. We, as the German Government, will have to discuss and take decisions on other measures,” he said.

Finally, the one considered as the 'heiress' of German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that Germany will not react the same as Poland or other Baltic states where “Russia violates airspace again and again and conducts campaigns misinformation, “he said.
