Mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko was a guest at the annual Christian Social Union (CSU) winter retreat in Bavaria's Kloster Seeon monastery on Friday, where he discussed cooperating with the party's parliamentary chairman Alexander Dobrindt. Speaking at a joint press briefing, Dobrindt said his side supports 'pro-European forces' in Ukraine, as well as strengthening and stabilising economic... Еще relations. Klitschko stated his country has a 'pro-European vision', and called for EU support for a 'strong Ukraine.' The former boxer also blamed alleged Russian influence in the Ukrainian country, which reportedly led to an escalation in the conflict. «The sanctions have a strong impact and the sanctions must be further extended,» urged Klitschko.
