Members debated the Russian military action in the Republic of Chechnya which began December 11, 1994, and voted unanimously to condemn what was called Russia’s human rights violations. German Chancellor Helmut Kohl emphasized that it was extremely important to continue to support Russia and President Boris Yeltsin. Chechnya first declared its independence from Russia in 1991. Germany is Russia’s largest trading partner and provider of foreign aid, and representatives of the two governments will meet in St. Petersburg this week for a two-day economic summit. Translation from German to English was by voiceover. close
