European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker sees no argument for lifting sanctions against Russia. He stated this in an interview with Euronews.

“So far I have not seen any arguments in order to immediately lift sanctions against Russia”, – said Juncker.

At the same time, he believes that we need an agreement with Russia, “which would go beyond the normal,” because, in his opinion, without Russia there is no security in Europe.

He also noted that he believes the big mistake the rating of Russia from ex-US President Barack Obama, who called it a “regional power”.

On the question of whether to change the position of the European Union if the new President of the United States Donald trump will have a different view on sanctions against Russia, Juncker said that the EU is not dependent on US foreign policy.

“The United States will do what they want, and the Europeans will have their own interests,” – said Juncker.
