Peace and stability in Europe can be reached only if Russia will be a partner, not an enemy, Austrian chancellor and chairman of the Austrian People's Party Sebastian Kurz stated, RIA Novosti reports.
Kurz also supports the gradual cancellation of the anti-Russian sanctions. According to the Austrian polititian, it would be very stimulating for release of the situation in eastern Ukraine. Kurz has mentioned earlier that the main precondition for the commencement of this process a durable ceasefire in the conflict zone of that country.
As Russkiy Mir reported earlier, European Union prolongs sanctions against Russia every half a year. European Union referred to failure of observe Minsk agreements in full scope by Russia as a reason for this decision. According to the politologists these restrictions can not help solving any EU goals of developing relationships with Russia. It was mentioned multiple times that these sanctions are affecting Europe's economy on the first place.
