European Commission believes Ukraine’s retaliatory sanctions for Russian goods’ transit are economically deleterious
Johannes Hahn also called on Russia to abandon restrictions on transit of Ukrainian goods
European Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and negotiations on expanding Johannes Hahn urged the Russian Federation to abandon the restrictions imposed on the transit of Ukrainian goods, but considered the Ukraine’s sanctions imposed on Russian goods counterproductive. He said this to journalists in Kyiv, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
"I do not agree with these measures ... I call upon Russia to change its position", Khan said.
The commissioner noted that he understands the temptation of Ukraine to do the same in return, however, in his opinion, it will not benefit the economic development.
