The President of Bulgaria rumen Radev said that anti-Russian sanctions cannot last indefinitely. About it reports Agency BTA.

According to Radeva, in economic terms, restrictive measures are harmful, and they cause damage to the economic relationship. Bulgarian leader at the same time noticed that sanctions are a common European political decision, but a business should not suffer from them. “So I hope that at some point they will be cancelled”, — he said at a joint press conference with President of Poland Andrzej Duda.

June 10, Radev said he was ready to support the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions, but to initiate a similar process can not. “I’m happy to support any act for the abolition of these sanctions, but let it be clear — alone, the President cannot initiate such act”, — said the Bulgarian leader.

A number of countries, including the USA and member States of the European Union has imposed restrictive measures against Moscow in 2014, linking them with the annexation of Crimea to Russia, and then the conflict in the South-East of Ukraine. They affect the financial, energy and military-industrial sectors of the economy. Brussels also imposed sanctions against the Crimea.
