The probability of lifting anti-Russian sanctions increases, the leader of the Ukrainian choice.

Ukraine is not worth much to hope for anti-Russian US sanctions, undermining Euro-Atlantic unity. So the leader of the public movement “the Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk.

“S&P Global Platts published information according to which Berlin has already begun a discussion of anti-American sanctions. New restrictions against Russia in Germany is rightly regarded as attempt of US expansion in the energy market of Europe,” he said.

According to Medvedchuk, some experts believe that such countermeasures may be the ban of supply of expensive liquefied gas from the USA to the EU market. “It is obvious that the EU supports the construction of “Nord stream-2″. Attempts of Ukraine and Poland to prevent the implementation of the project appear naive – it is the largest European energy companies have already allocated funding,” he said.

According to Medvedchuk, the West against the anti-Russian sanctions no longer speaks with one voice. “And this increases the likelihood of their complete abolition by the EU, the economic losses of countries from sanctions policy to order more than the United States,” he stated.

We will remind, on June 22, the European Union extended economic sanctions against Russia imposed over the annexation of Crimea and Moscow’s actions in the conflict in Ukraine.
