MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. EU’s losses from worsening relations with Russia stand at €21-40 billion, Russian State Duma’s Committee on International Relations Alexey Pushkov said on Monday.
"The losses sustained as a result of dismantling a strategic partnership are considerable, and not only for Russia," Pushkov said.
Citing Spanish Foreign Ministry’s statistics, he noted that EU lost around €21 billion from sanctions. According to Japanese economists, EU lost €30 billion, Pushkov added. "Several European experts say that we are talking about €40 billion [in losses]," the lawmaker stressed. "The aggregate amount of losses that European farmers sustained from Russian food embargo from European countries stood at €12 billion in 2014," he added.
In a period from January to August 2014, EU’s import to Russia dropped by 12%, or €10 billion. "If in 2013 the import over the same period [from January to August] constituted €80 billion, in 2014 it stood only at €70 billion," Pushkov said.
