The speakers discussed the broadly understood impact of the coronavirus on the current geopolitical situation in Europe and the world. Among other things, a number of events that could be affected by the coronavirus were discussed, including the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The time of the pandemic is also the period of the German presidency of the Council of the European Union. Could this state of affairs further strengthen the German position in the EU? The participating experts also sought answers to this question. The increasing tension between the US, Russia and China was also raised during the discussion.
