National Holiday Of Russia in the Schlosshotel Kronberg

Schlosshotel Kronberg, June 8, 2018

On the occasion of the national holiday of Russia, the Consul General of the Russian Federation in Frankfurt am Main, Alexander B. Bulay, invited representatives from politics, business, culture and society to the reception in the Schlosshotel Kronberg. As guest, “true friend of Russia” and member of the St. Petersburg Dialogue (AG Health), our senior partner Prof. Ehlers was asked to give a speech. Prof. Ehlers made clear that Europe must represent its own position globally. History, philosophy, literature and music, but above all, the many family relationships showed the strong common roots of Germany and Russia. We should become aware of these roots in the face of increasing global tensions. It was high time to improve the dialogue between Germany and Russia respectively between the West and Russia under all circumstances. Sanctions are the wrong way. If there is friendship between Germany and Russia, peace in the world and Europe is safer. With big applause the invited guests thanked for the clear words. Until late into the night, Professor Ehlers discussed with them his analysis and the next steps to take.
