Vice-Chancellor of Austria urged to lift sanctions against Russia
The EU should reconsider its position towards Russia and to lift the sanctions, said in an interview with the newspaper Österreich, Vice-Chancellor of Austria Heinz-Christian strache.
“It would be desirable for the EU to reconsider (the position to Russia), as sanctions will primarily hurt the Austrian economy. I have always warned about not to send Russia into the arms of China. It is time to stop these painful sanctions and normalize political and economic relations with Russia”, — said Mr. strache on the question of EU policy in relation to the new duties of States (quoted by “RIA Novosti”).
We will remind, on may 31, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced that from June 1, the U.S. imposed a 25 percent duty on steel from the EU, Canada and Mexico, and 10% — for aluminium produced in these countries.
