«Germany is not rampant anti-Russian sentiment, these trends no… We discussed the issue of sanctions is quite intense, this issue plays an important place in our trip. In particular, it is one of the main reasons why we came here. Because the issue of sanctions affect the situation at the regional level, sanctions lead to protectionism. Thus, on the basis of sanctions appears the potential for deployment and development of the conflict,» the MP said at the meeting with the faction «Fair Russia» in the Duma.

Deputy Chairman of the party «the Left», the Chairman of the left faction in the Landtag of Mecklenburg–Vorpommern Simone Oldenburg also stressed that their party is the party of peace.

Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated over the situation in Ukraine, where in 2014 there was a coup, and around the Crimea, which reunited with Russia after the referendum held there. Western countries have accused Russia of meddling in the Affairs of Ukraine and have imposed sanctions. Moscow retaliated, repeatedly denied the charges and claimed to talk to her in the language of sanctions is counterproductive.

Recently in the West often hear opinions about the necessity of cancellation of sanctions against Russia.
