The President of Bulgaria rumen Radev said he was ready to support the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions, but the process itself can not initiate.

“I will gladly support any action to cancel these sanctions, but it should be clear that the President alone cannot initiate such actions,” said Radev in an interview with BTV.

He noted that the EU mechanism is built in such a way that even one country can start the process of lifting of sanctions, and sooner or later it will happen, as the mutual restrictive measures bring only harm.

Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Crimea and Ukraine. At the end of July 2014, the EU and the USA from the point of sanctions against certain individuals and companies have moved to measures against entire sectors of the Russian economy. In response, Russia restricted imports of food products from countries that have imposed sanctions against her: USA, EU States, Canada, Australia and Norway.
