MEP Rolandas Paksas, commenting on the tensions of European countries and Russia and rhetoric in the address of Moscow, said that «this psychosis must be stopped».

«I think about it now we have to say, the psychosis must be stopped. People are really scared,» he said at a meeting with Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, comparing the current situation with the atmosphere before the First world war.

The politician called for the development of dialogue with Moscow. «In many countries the media say that Russian can not agree. I want to prove the opposite, that it is necessary, possible, necessary and useful. We should talk on all levels,» he said.

«Better a long conversation than a short war» — summed up Paksas, stressing that, despite the statements of some politicians, people do not want «war».

Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine and around the Crimea. The West is accusing Russia of meddling, have imposed sanctions, Moscow responded, took a course on import substitution and has repeatedly said that talking with her in language of sanctions counterproductive. Russia has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine and the subject of the Minsk agreements on the settlement. Lately in the EU clearly there are opinions on necessity of cancellation of sanctions against Russia.
