PARIS, April 25. /TASS/. The French National Assembly (lower house of parliament) will hold debates for the first time on the possible cancellation of the EU sanctions against Russia on April 28, member of the center-right Republicans party Thierry Mariani who initiated this parliamentary debate said on Monday.
According to him, this is a proposal to pass "a resolution calling on the French government not to extend the restrictive measures and economic sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union." "The parliamentarians will for the first time speak out on the issue of the European sanctions against Russia. This draft resolution that has received the signatures of more than 80 lawmakers will be considered at an open session on Thursday, April 28," Mariani said.
According to the parliamentarian, the anti-Russian sanctions bring France nothing but harm, therefore they should be lifted. "Useless and ineffective sanctions against Russia have today become a heavy burden for the French agriculture. That’s why I urge members of the parliamentary majority to show responsibility and stop shifting it to Brussels," he said.
