Russia doesn't plan to discuss lifting of sanctions with EU - Lavrov

MOSCOW. April 14 (Interfax) - Russia sees no need to discuss the possibility of lifting sanctions with the European Union today, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"As regards sanctions, we have said many times that this is the topic that we even will not discuss. If the EU realizes that this method has exhausted itself and if it renounces the decisions that were adopted in 2014, we will certainly be ready to reciprocate," Lavrov said in an online interview on Tuesday.
