Languages of publication
This article presents the positions of Angela Merkel’s eastern policy during the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and her impact exerted on the activities of the European Union and the Russian Federation. When analyzing Merkel’s attitude toward both sides of the conflict one notices that the Chancellor paid much attention to maintaining good relations with the Russian Federation and with Ukraine as well. The entrance of the Russian troops to Crimea became a turning point in Merkel’s “Ostpolitik”. Since then on the Chancellor began to assess the Russian policy more decidedly as activities that are impossible to accept since they violate the principles of international law.
