'I just talked to Sigmar Gabriel, the German Foreign Minister. We will begin the next year with the visit to Donbas', he wrote.
Earlier Gabriel said that in case a long ceasefire is established in the Donbas, Europe should help Ukraine with the restoration of Donbas. According to Gabriel, such assistance is possible in case of establishing a long truce in the Donbas. He noted that Europe could help, for example, in restoring the water supply and sanitation systems.
