This is coolbert:

The Russian parliament [Duma] once more engaging in machinations that are counter-productive? The entire aspect of German re-unification now being called into question. AND FOR WHAT REASON OR GAIN?

"Russia may condemn annexation of German Democratic Republic"

"Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Sergey Naryshkin entrusted the Committee for Foreign Affairs to study the proposal from Communist Party deputy Nikolai Ivanov. It goes about the possible adoption of the statement from the Russian parliament condemning 'the annexation of the German Democratic Republic [communist East Germany] by the Federal Republic of Germany in 1989'"

This is all part and parcel of the Russian objections to NATO moving eastward in the aftermath of the dissolution of the old Soviet Union?

ONLY a statement YES but in the context of the Ukraine Crisis and continued Russian military aggressive and unnecessary provocation such "statements" once more counter-productive and unnecessary!!

The quote from the Duma seems to refer to a resolution prior to the reunification treaty, the so-called "4+1" agreement, which was accepted by the Soviet Union. If Russia wishes to renounce that treaty, then Germany's claim to East Prussia is revived, at least technically, or until John McCain hears about it.
