Diplomat says sanctions against Russia already led EU into deadlock

On July 2 the European Union prolonged economic sectoral sanctions against Russia until January 31, 2017.

Sanctions imposed against Russia brought the European Union into a deadlock and it will have to find the way out on its own, Russian Permanent Representative to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said on Monday.

"I think the EU countries gradually start realizing sanctions have already brought the European Union into a stalemate. However, it will have to find the way out of this deadlock on its own," Chizhov said.
