Major shocks between European Union and U.S. anti-Russian sanctions will not, for Europeans the USA is the main trade and economic partner, and they will not go to the deterioration of relations with him, the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council of Russia Konstantin Kosachev.

The US President Donald trump on Wednesday signed legislation significantly expands sanctions against Russia.

«Large shocks between the European Union and the United States, I, unfortunately, do not predict,» — said Kosachev on Wednesday the TV channel «Russia 24».

He stressed that the Europeans are annoyed and disappointed that the U.S. does not consider their interests. «They will make a noise to protest, but the matter I’m afraid will not go», — said the Senator.

Kosachev noted the EU’s commitment to further economic cooperation with America. In turn, the States understand that Europe is unhappy with their actions, but they also understand that «all steam will leave in a whistle», he said.

The evolving situation does not guarantee major breakthroughs in cooperation between Russia and European States, concluded Kosachev.

Commenting on the signing by the President of the United States Donald trump of the law on anti-sanctions, Kosachev called the situation «unpleasant, but not catastrophic.» He stressed that Russia has learned to live under restrictions from the West, to find new partners.

The head of the Federation Council Committee also believes that, when discussing the response, «first, do no harm to himself.» According to him, in the first place should be the respect for our own national interests, and on the second response to the malevolent action of States.

Trump’s statement that the law is faulty, Kosachev said «try to keep a good mine at bad game». According to the Senator, trump misjudged the rules of the game policy, deciding that, as in business, you got a good deal, and you’re a winner. However, in politics everything is different.

Kosachev also do not expect an early resolution of the situation at the exit of Russia from the sanctions regime. He recalled that the new law «a fatal mistake is that in one pile all piled, as Americans say, all the problems, denies any prospect of the movement of the US towards Russia.»

Radical improvement of relations between our countries can only be after American politicians admit that the law was incorrect and that it leads to the degradation of relations between our countries, he added.
