MOSCOW, July 7. /TASS/. The chairman of the international affairs committee of the State Duma, the lower house of Russia’s parliament, Alexey Pushkov said that today’s resolution by the Cyprus Parliament against anti-Russian sanctions will be followed by new such documents in other legislatures of the European Union countries, as the talk is about a stable tendency based on public opinion and political circles.

"I am absolutely convinced that such resolutions will emerge in other national parliaments as well. The French resolution gave it a start, Italian regional parliaments continued, and as of today, Cyprus is adopting such a resolution on the national level," Pushkov told TASS.

He said "other resolutions will follow as the policy of sanctions has exhausted itself both economically and financially."

"Forces in the EU who believe they will force Russia to change its policy by sanctions pressure are sticking to it," Pushkov said.

"It is becoming clear in Europe that pressure is not a method to use to talk to Russia," he said.

The Cyprus Parliament on Thursday adopted a resolution on lifting anti-Russian sanctions earlier imposed by the EU. A total of 33 deputies supported the document submitted by members of Cyprus’ Progressive Party of Working People; 17 abstained from voting.
