In his opinion, in the long term, the new sanctions could affect Moscow’s policy in the middle East, but in Russia they have no impact. In this case, Robert Röttgen criticized the EU for what the countries of the Union are afraid to impose new restrictions against Russia and refuse to “call a spade a spade”.

Thus Germany can take the initiative of introduction of new sanctions in the framework of the European Union.
