The candidate in chancellors of Germany from the “Left” Dietmar Bartsch called for the lifting of sanctions against Russia for four years.

“I believe that in the next legislative period of the discussion whether to lift the sanctions will go more actively” — he said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Bartsch, in his words, “full of hope that the issue will be resolved during the next legislative period.” “It is a policy of the Left party and other parties want to end it, because this path is incorrect”, — said the Agency interlocutor, adding that the “Left” would be willing to support the initiative of other parties on the abolition of restrictions.

The European Union imposed sanctions against Russia in the spring of 2014 in connection with the situation in Ukraine and in the Crimea, and since then regularly extended them. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to domestic conflict, and talking to her in the language of sanctions is counterproductive.
