Trust between Russia and the European Union can be restored over time. This opinion was announced by Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto in an interview with El Mundo.
The Minister stressed that the Finnish-Russian border is currently very calm, and the Finnish Embassy in Moscow remains open.
“We have many families on both sides of the border, we must remember this at the human level, regardless of disagreements at the political level,” he urged.
According to Haavisto, after the start of Russia's special operation in Ukraine, trust disappeared and it will take time to restore it.
“I am convinced that someday this trust will return, but it is very difficult to say how and when,” he said.
How is Russia going to respond? Last time, an attack of this scale on the Crimean Bridge led to the beginning of the destruction of the Ukrainian energy system
