    BERLIN, JANUARY 29 (RIA Novosti correspondent Alexander Polotsky) - The arrival of emissary of Chechen militants Akhmed Zakayev in Berlin will not have a negative impact on relations between Russia and Germany, Sergei Krylov, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Federal Republic of Germany said in an interview with the RIA Novosti correspondent.

    "Relations between our countries are marked by such high level of trustfulness that we can discuss any problems," the Ambassador said.

    "The significance of Zakayev's coming to Berlin at the invitation of certain German MPs should not be exaggerated, the Russian Ambassador noted.

    According to Sergei Krylov, the German government officials, including from the German Foreign Ministry, do not intend to meet with Zakayev.

    He also said that the German mass media "did not almost pay any attention" to the appearance of Zakayev in the German capital.

    The local mass media are aware of the positive developments in today's Chechnya, the ambassador said.

    Zakayev's arrival in Berlin is quite in line with the situation, when against the background of "obvious stabilization of the general situation in Chechnya whose population that is sick and tired of wars and confrontation, unequivocally enough displayed its will during the recent referendum and the elections of the head of Chechnya, certain forces are trying to interfere with this process, Sergei Krylov said.

    The people of Zakayev's type are "yesterday's people." Yes, they must be punished for their crimes, but in any case they are "yesterday's people," the Russian diplomat said.
