Salvini heads to Russian Federation, urges end of European Union sanctions

Matteo Salvini the Italy’s interior minister has called the sanctions “economic absurdity”

On Wednesday, 17 October, said the Vice-Prime Minister of Italy Matteo Salvini during his visit to Moscow.

Interior Minister of Italy and leader of the far-right party "League" Matteo Salvini said that Ukraine is fueling a religious war.

"If we are asked to confirm the sanctions, we say no".

His comments got a warm reception from his audience, a gathering of the Russo-Italian business community, and several Russian and Italian businessmen took the microphone to press the minister to get the sanctions lifted.

"We can only play the veto joker once in Europe", Salvini said, noting that Italy is also battling Brussels on other fronts, including over the European Union budget, immigration reform, and Italy's own, contested 2019 budget.


"There's the question of the European Union budget, the question of migration, and the budget, which I don't know what to play if they reject it but we'll carry on all the same".

EU sources have told RFE/RL that Italy might agree to extend the sanctions if the EU agrees to Rome's proposal to soften them somewhat by reviving EU bank funding for small Russian businesses that were not targeted by the sanctions. "If you look at the current global developments, it is obvious that it would be in our interest to rebuild a pragmatic, normal cooperation between Europe and Russian Federation, based on common sense, based on mutual trust, and based on the respect toward worldwide law", he said.

Conte is scheduled to meet Russia President Vladimir Putin next week in Moscow.

"I feel at home here".
