Berlin, January 27. background On the operation in Syria, Russia was perceived as a major military and political player on the world stage. This was stated by the outgoing foreign Minister of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
According to the politician, the Russian military operation in Syria was provoked by the US position. Also, the diplomat noted that Russia's success has led to the fact that the country became perceived as a major military and political player on the world stage.
"large-Scale operation in Syria, of course, was initiated in order to challenge provoking the US position, which brought Russia to a regional power. At least from the Russian point of view they do seem to succeed, Russia is perceived as a major military and political player," said Steinmeier.
However, the politician said that Russia will not be able to return to the world order of the time of the Yalta conference.
And if she wants to be an influential player in the international community, Russia will have to resort to finding a partner politically..
