The German Foreign Ministry announced the conditions for the partial lifting of anti-Russian sanctions

The German Foreign Ministry launched an initiative to phase out the sanctions against the Russian Federation. It should be noted that this is not the first such initiative emanating from European politicians, however, as soon as it comes to voting in the entire EU format, the Europeans extend the full package of anti-Russian sanctions measures - often unanimously.

Information Service Sputnik Deutschland cites a statement by German Foreign Minister Zigmar Gabriel, who noted that the reason for lifting part of the sanctions could be a long-term truce in the Donbas.

From Gabriel's statement:
If the Russian Federation is ready to do this (we are talking about securing a long-term truce in the conflict zone), then it should get something for it.

The German Foreign Ministry announced the conditions for the partial lifting of anti-Russian sanctions

At the same time, Gabriel made it clear that nobody would go to the abolition of all anti-Russian sanctions in the European Union, and called the idea of ​​complete abolition “divorced from reality”.

These statements raise many questions for the simple reason that Germany itself is one of the guarantors of the implementation of the Minsk agreements. But because Russia can just as well declare that it will lift part of the sanctions against the EU if Germany, together with France (another guarantor), provides long-term peace in the Donbas.

    Perhaps it’s enough to clutch at the idea that we should do something that will immediately remove the sanctions from us? We must ignore such statements, and live in the knowledge that the sanctions, in any case against Russia, are eternal, just like the stupidity of politicians and military men from Europe and the United States, who want to bring the people of Russia to their knees! The authorities, yes, but the people are not! Not from that test are we made to be afraid of sanctions!

            But is he ALREADY the Minister of Foreign Affairs or ALREADY the Minister of Foreign Affairs?
            If STILL, then his words are by no means worth pfening .....

    How do you like such a verbal trick of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country, which is officially the guarantor of Minsk and still hasn’t hit a finger? And the ending:
    Gabriel made it clear that no one would go to the lifting of all anti-Russian sanctions in the European Union

    I'm more worried if the "sanctions" from Russia are lifted. This will indicate that our power has surrendered or sold to the West. And life under sanctions is quite tolerable - under the Union they lived in even greater isolation. Still the West thought of closing the border with us. In the 90s, the West was friends with us and did not impose sanctions, so I personally got fed up with such a "happy" and "well-fed" life and this "friendship" with the West ...

      The world is not limited to the so-called “West”; rather, this so-called “fence around” will be poked with fingers, like in monkeys in a zoo. Then they will put their sanctions in one place. We have the longest border and we have friends with whom to trade besides the "West", and if the BRICS + countries have also joined and declare a general boycott of trade with the "West", you will not envy them ..

        About that and speech. In the same USA and Europe, the so-called titular nations drove themselves into the ghetto, and live in the appearance of a prosperous world, as if under a dome. For the territory of this ghetto they better not meddle - where at night, and where and during the day it is risky - blacks, Latinos, Asians and other people of the "second grade". The same thing happens with the West and on a global scale.

    Although the Germans did well, they themselves came up with sanctions, they themselves got into them, and now they are discussing with themselves the possibility of lifting them.

    Long-term truce? Easy, man. The drunk from the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not calm down for long, so who is the first to yell, Comrade Sigmar? Some sanctions. Sanctions are a catalyst for our economy. More sanctions, good and different. Give fire! Little zhotot, idiots.

    Sanctions against Russia in one form or another always existed. After all, unfair competition allows you to get additional profit. So they will continue to "crush" in all directions. After all, Russia now occupies the 4th place in the world in industrial production (not to be confused with GDP, where the lion's share is services). Well and how not to "brake" it in any way?
    And then, in fact, soon arrogant Russians will capture some markets ...

    The bespontovy chatter of politicians of certain states with the goal of seeming more significant than they actually are. There is nothing to talk about. If to shoot means to shoot, and so with the conditions, it means nothing.

      Similarly. In my life, nothing changes - are there sanctions or no sanctions for us Tatars do not care. Here are asteroids, yes. This is dangerous, I'm afraid. Let the Fritz first deal with the refugees from introducing American democracy in the Middle East.

    How can the Russian Federation provide a truce in the civil war that is going on in another country? Ask both sides not to shoot? So asked already. The Germans can also ask. Why not ask? They do not want to turn to LDNR, as this will mean that the Germans recognized them. At least in what sense and at least how much. The consent of the Russian Federation to this will be recognition of itself as a party to the conflict. Therefore, a stupid talking room. But politicians must say that they have such a job.

    Ish, what a "fair" uncle! If we do what he (uncle) needs, he will give a "sweetie". Let this uncle and Aunt Merkel stick her sweetie in her old ass. I think that our Foreign Ministry will politely and neutral mumble at this idle talk of the German "uncle".

    The lifting of sanctions in Russia-Europe relations is possible only after the European Union has compensated for the damage that was caused to Russia by sanctions during their actions. And no other way! And we will calculate ....... or turn off the gas!

      As long as it is more profitable for Germans to trade with the United States and with countries dependent on Americans, the longer the sanctions will remain. And nobody canceled the American bases on the territory of Deutschland.
      As air, Russia needs the latest technologies (oil production, microelectronics, etc.), it seems to me, by analogy, as in the days of I.V. Stalin, when in the 30s everything that could be bought was bought - factories, factories, machine tools, technologies.
      Therefore, if a signal is sent from the west, then whoever needs it will hear it.

    Let everyone choke on their sanctions and let them continue to dance around the fire during the next gathering of their Sabbath. In general, ofigeli supposedly announced the conditions for partial lifting of sanctions. It is necessary for the rams to sag, well, not completely, so just a little, so that there is someone to lift the sanctions, but they will be removed immediately, but then they played too much and their nose began to turn up all around,
