The current period can be more dangerous than the cold war, as major powers threaten existing international agreements.
EU Ambassador to Russia Markus Ederer believes that if Russia and the United States will not try to minimise the current risks in the bilateral relations, the situation can become more dangerous than during the cold war. This representative of the EU said in an interview with Kommersant.
He said that now humanity lives "in a world without poles", while "the situation is not static but highly mobile".
"According to some experts, all this may have a negative impact on the possible extension of expiring in 2021 The Treaty between Russia and the USA on measures for the further reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms", − the diplomat added.
