    Fresh from the G7 and NATO summits that took place this week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Europe must "take its fate into its own hands."

    All By Herself

    During an address at an election rally in Munich, the chancellor stated that Germany and other European countries can no longer "completely rely on others."

    "We have to fight for our own destiny," Merkel declared.

    Meanwhile, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that this matter doesn't concern Moscow as Europe and the US should sort out their relations by themselves.

    "The US side and the Europeans should tackle their relations by themselves, this is not our concern," Peskov told reporters.
