MOSCOW, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of the Russian presidential council on development of civil society and human rights Mikhail Fedotov criticized the EU’s new sanctions against Russia.

“Our Council has always been against (sanctions) races of the kind. We should rather compete in something different. In the old times, we had the arms race, and now the sanctions race… ,” he said, mentioning European magazines refused to publish works by Russian scientists after the sanctions had been introduced.

“Sanctions cause counter-sanctions, then more sanctions follow — a road to nowhere. It is necessary to offer ways to settle the conflict in Ukraine’s south-east, especially now that a protocol (on ceasefire) was signed in Minsk,” the official said.
