DAMASCUS, April 17. /TASS/. Europe is offering humanitarian aid to the Syrians to mitigate the migration crisis and concurrently is incurring economic damage to them by means of unilateral sanctions. Russia calls to stop such contradictory practices, Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak told TASS on Sunday.
"On the one hand, they are helping the Syrians, including through their own interest to prevent their massive flight from the country and coming to Europe, but, on the other hand, they are preserving the current sanctions," he said. "There are sanction restrictions on normal economic exchange, restrictions on banking operations, Syrian assets are still frozen. One can hardly be coupled with another from the point of view of common sense.".
