"Mr President, the Berlin Wall was demolished 25 years ago. It seemed that this was the end of the Cold War and the victory of democracy, the free and united world. It seemed that not only the Wall but also Cold War ideology, flushed with the blood of innocent people, collapsed. Yet 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall I ask myself and all of us: can we really say that the Cold War as a political concept belongs to the dump of history? What does the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, mean by saying that the break-up of the USSR was the greatest geopolitical tragedy of the 20th century? What does the military occupation of sovereign territories of Georgia and Ukraine mean? Are they not attempts to restore the Great Russia and the Soviet Union? Does that not look like building a new wall between the West and Russia? Let us celebrate the historical events in Berlin that we witnessed 25 years ago, but do not let anyone build the new walls of a Cold War today. That is our duty and responsibility as politicians."@lt2
