It is not the first visit of Horst Seehofer to Moscow. The previous visit of the leader CSU was in February last year and garnered criticism towards him.

It bears noting that Horst Seehofer reminded Vladimir Putin of his visit to the restaurant of the brewing company Aying (30km from Munich).

Horst Seehofer: “One of the most legendary meetings in the history of our relations took place in the Guest house Aying, You planned to stay for an hour and as a result stayed up to midnight.

Vladimir Putin: «Ich erinnere mich…». «I didn’t have an opportunity to leave»…
