Foreign Minister of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, believes that Russia is «carefully turns» to Europe after unmet expectations regarding the partnership with China and the United States.

According to him, Russian President Vladimir Putin had hoped to achieve with the China partnership on an equal footing, but the hope did not justify itself. «The Chinese say with confidence: there’s only two superpowers – we and the United States,» said Gabriel in an interview with Stern.

The second hope of the Russian Federation, according to the head of the German foreign Ministry, was the fact that relations between Moscow and Washington will improve with the coming to power of Donald trump, which didn’t happen, said Gabriel.

«So the Russians again gently turning to Europe,» concluded Gabriel.
