Austrian Chancellor: Europeans disappointed with ineffectiveness of anti-Russian sanctions

The West should not rush to introduce new anti-Russian sanctions, says Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer. According to him, residents of European countries are disappointed because the restrictions do not lead to the desired effect, RIA Novosti reports.


Nehammer recalled that the West has already introduced a large number of restrictions. He expressed the opinion that for the time being this should be stopped.

“As long as they are not as effective as we expected, I think it would be a mistake to think about new sanctions,” the Austrian Chancellor explained.

Earlier it was reported that the EU may introduce a seventh package of sanctions against Russia if Moscow recognises the referendums in Donbass. However, there is no common position among the EU member states on this issue.
