Briefing by Knut Fleckenstein


On 16 February 2015, the AEB organised a briefing by Knut Fleckenstein, Vice-Chairman of the Group of Socialists & Democrats at the European Parliament. The event was held in the AEB premises and gave the AEB Members a great opportunity to discuss the current situation in Ukraine and the related sanctions with a key German politician from the European Parliament. Mr. Fleckenstein, who chaired the Delegation to the EU-Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee during its previous term in the European Parliament, shared his views on the current tensions between the EU and Russia. He was eager to hear about the difficulties faced by European investors in Russia and their position vis-à-vis the sanctions.  The AEB shall continue to voice the concerns of the European businesses in Brussels during its planned visit to the European institutions on 16-18 March 2015.
