United States Vice-President Michael Pence does not rule out the easing of imposed anti-Russian sanctions, informs Abc.

"The question of sanctions depends on whether we will see different kinds of changes in the position of Russia and the opportunity to work on common interests. Namely it is fighting with ISIS," said Michael Pence.

He added: "We and Russia have a common interest in the confrontation with radical Islamic terrorism and particularly with ISIS, and if we have the opportunity to work together, I think the president is looking for an opportunity to start the relationship again."

At the same time Michael Pence said that the issue of sanctions against Russia will become clear in the next couple of months.

At the same time according to US Vice-President, the White House actively monitors the situation in the east of Ukraine. "We are very concerned about the intensification of hostilities", said Pence.

Earlier European Union planned to extend sanctions against a number of Russian citizens for another six months. Also US President Donald Trump promised Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko United States won’t lift sanctions on Russia until it pulls out of Ukraine.
