Russia's envoy to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov believes it is unlikely that the situation with anti-Russian economic sanctions the EU will change before the end of the year.
"I think that as long as nothing has changed and until the end of the year, the situation is unlikely to change, if not change the situation in the Ukrainian conflict, which, unfortunately, some of our opponents are much hopeful (I mean the situation)," said Chizhov in an interview to RIA " Novosti ". Russia and the European Union, according to his statement, continue the dialogue on migration issues, despite the punishment." Pick them up, of migrants, of course, do not offer - we offer exchange of experience. In the issue of peaceful coexistence of different ethnic groups, religious groups, Russia has the experience, who probably have the opportunity to envy the most, " said Chizhov. Remember, on 22 June, the EU Council formally extended punishment against Russia for another six months, until 31 January 2016.
