'The majority think that Europe and the world are tired from the provision of support to Ukraine. And there are the attempts to lift the sanctions against Russia.

If we close our eyes on this issue then we will be forced to talk not about the economy, development but about the survival of the world in very difficult conditions and situation', he noted.

It is proved by the at the expense of the best patriots' lives'.
