on Sunday, the Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov commented on the statement of the President of France Emmanuel Makron at the Munich security conference. As Pushkov wrote on Twitter, the EU gave itself a trap, talking with Russia language of sanctions.
macron admitted that sanctions have cost the EU so much as Russia, but did not give a “positive result.” Update: politically, the result is zero. To insist on this course, makes no sense, and how to break the deadlock, the EU does not know. The case when the hunter fell into his own trap.

According to a member of the Federation Council, the use of restrictive measures have not yielded neither Europe nor Russia. But the EU could not think of a way out of the situation, although to stay the course meaning is long gone.
