Sanctions are starting to “melt away” because Europe does not benefit from current relations with Russia, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.
“Sanctions policy starts to ‘melt away’. One way or another, this course will not last forever,” Rogozin said at the session of the Maritime Collegium and presidium of the State Commission for Arctic Development Issues.
Rogozin noted that sanctions will still remain in some form. “However, they will not, of course, remain in the current form because it is just impossible for Europe to have such bad relations with Russia,” he concluded.
