“The reasons for the delay – concerns that the issue of softening or lifting of anti-Russian sanctions may lead to confrontation between the European countries, which call for a revision of the sanctions, (Italy, France, Hungary and Greece), and States supporters of extension (Poland and the Baltic countries)”, – journalists assume.
In the end, the most loyal of Russia decided to “take a pause” and to postpone the claims about the weakening of the sanctions policy before the summit of EU leaders which will take place in December 2016. And raging in Europe migration crisis does not allow a proper focus on this issue. For the Kremlin, this means only that existing sanctions will be extended for another six months. despite growing resistance among European politicians.
