Chizhov also welcomed a offer to start work on a common mercantile confederation “from Lisbon to Vladivostok” recently uttered by French envoy to Russia Jean-Maurice Ripert, despite observant that this was not a initial time such an beginning had been brought adult by both Russian and European officials.

He also remarkable that in a enlarged tenure a plan could ring not usually a EU and Russia, though a EU and a Eurasian Economic Union – a confederation that also includes Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

It will be a contracting of all formation processes and structures that had been combined newly that can give a European continent, or, we can also call it a Eurasian continent, a certainty in a changing multi-polar world,” Chizhov said.

This is a uneven problem, combined by a European Union and it should be solved by a European Union. When a partners find adequate domestic will to get out of a passed finish that they have led themselves into, they know where to find us,” a Russian diplomat stated.

It’s loyal that we have introduced reciprocal measures – an entrance anathema on certain persons and certain trade restrictions – though we pronounced it behind afterwards and we are prepared to repeat this – Russian sanctions are a respond magnitude and they will be carried as shortly as a European Union rises a initial restrictions,” he added.

The sanctions sell began in mid-2014 as a US, EU and a series of their allies introduced sanctions opposite Russian companies and politicians over Russia’s purported purpose in a Ukrainian dispute and a advent of a Crimean Republic into a Russian Federation.

In Aug 2014, a Russian supervision reciprocated with a anathema on a import on meat, poultry, fish, cheese, milk, fruit and vegetables from a US, EU, Australia, Canada, Norway and other countries that had assimilated a initial Western sanctions. The embargo has been enlarged several times , many recently until Dec 31, 2017, due to a rejection of a West to lift restrictions on Russia.
