In the Bundestag, explained the danger of anti-Russian sanctions
The anti-punishment is useless, and their preservation hurts German business and leads to a reorientation of Russia on economic cooperation with China. Such opinion in interview of radio station Deutschlandfunk expressed the German people's Deputy, head of the Bundestag for economy and energy, Klaus Ernst.
"The effect of these penalties there," said Ernst, answering a journalist's question about the productivity of the sanctions policy of the EU towards Russia.
according to his vision, such a policy maintains the tension in relations between the two countries. The Ernst recalled that sanctions harm European companies, in particular the East and Also leads to the fact that the trade of Russia is more focused on China.
Also the people's choice expressed regret in connection with the recent statements of the new head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, who said about the need to adhere to a position of strength in the issue of anti-Russian sanctions.
"I'll just say I can not imagine such a policy successful," said Ernst, adding that Europe, weakens itself.
Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in 2014 because of the situation in Ukraine and the reunification of the Crimea with Russia. European countries, USA and Canada imposed anti-Russian punishment. Moscow has responded to the food embargo.
currently, the West is increasingly commented on the need to abolish the restrictive measures which are more harmful to those who impose them. Russia many times stated that is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine and the subject of the Minsk agreements on the settlement.
