Europe will not be able to provide peace and security on the continent without Russia, we cannot blindly follow the sanctions against the Russian capital, said one of the leaders of the German left party, Gregor Gysi.
Gysi is convinced that Europe is on the wrong path, blindly following the policy of sanctions against Russia coming from the capital of the USA, transfers RIA "news" referring to the German television channel ZDF.
the journalist of the channel suggested that Gysi "romanticizes the Russian," what the politician said that his party professes only pragmatic approach to policy." Never dealt with peace and security in the European Union, being against Russia without her. We must understand that Europe is in a different situation in comparison with America. We stupidly run after them, taking punishment, as desired by the USA, and the America at the same time, increases their trade. This can not be ", – German politician believes. In addition, Gregor Gysi said that the European authorities need to recognize the reunification of the Crimea with Russia, which, in his vision, was illegal. Anyway, adds a politician on Earth continuously changes occur that do not fit into the framework of existing laws, but then becomes valid. This applies to education – such as Pakistan, India and Iraq. Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine. In June, the EU Council formally extended punishment against Russia for another six months – until 31 January 2016. In addition, on 19 June, the Council of the European Union officially confirmed the extension of sanctions on Crimea and Sevastopol until June 23, 2016. In the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation said that Moscow is disappointed by the decision of Brussels on the extension of economic sanctions against Russia, noting that the EU is deliberately ignoring the fact that the extension of restrictive measures will result in the loss of jobs to hundreds of thousands of Europeans. The Russian President Vladimir Putin, for his part, said the signing of the decree on the extension of protective measures from 6 August 2015, and the Cabinet of Ministers of Russia issued a decree on the renewal of countermeasures relative to the countries that supported anti-Russian punishment. Remember, in Crimea on March 16 of last year held a referendum on the status of autonomy, at least 96% of participants who were in favor of joining region in Russia. March 21, 2014 Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the law on ratification of the agreement on joining of the Crimea and Sevastopol a part of Russia, as well as the decree about formation of the Crimean Federal district.
