German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that the incident with the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny had not affected his country's interest in good relations with the Russian Federation. This position was stated by Maas in an interview with RIA Novosti.

"What happened to Alexei Navalny does not change geography and therefore does not affect our fundamental interest in good or at least reasonable relations with Russia," Maas said.

He stressed that Germany was a country that lived by trade and scientific exchange and for that reason alone wanted to maintain them.
