MOSCOW, October 15 (RIA Novosti) - CDU-CSU inquiry in Bundestag on the economic future of the Koenigsberg region after the expansion of the European Union runs counter to the policy of the Russian and German leadership, says the Russian foreign ministry's commentary available in RIA Novosti.

The CDU-CSU faction in the German parliament has suggested that the government think over a certain regional formation within the geographical confines of the former East Prussia on the basis of the Kaliningrad reigion and adjacent territories of neighbouring states.

"Now that Russian-German relations, business and economic cooperation, in particular, between the Kaliningrad region and some regions and cities in Germany, are developing in all directions, this largely infamous document by the CDU-CSU coalition can be regarded only as a hindrance to the policy of ever deeper mutual understanding and wider strategic partnership being pursued by the leaderships of Germany and Russia," says the document.

"Russia could not fail to pay attention to this parliamentary inquiry concerning one of the jurisdictions of the Russian Federation-Kaliningrad Region," says the commentary.

"Its undertone, statements and hackneyed stereotypes evoke at the minimum embarrassment and inner protest," says the foreign ministry.

"This document hardly harmonizes with the efforts to enhance cooperation between Russia and the European Union."

"It is even more surprising and alarming that this move bordering on interference in Russia's internal affairs has been initiated by one of the leading political forces whose leaders have already declared their adherence to the development of Russian-German cooperation," says the commentary.

The Russian foreign ministry has also expressed hopes that the German government will respond to the pretence by the authors of the inquiry to ignore historical reality and the results of the post-war settlement in Europe.
