Cyprus Lawmakers Want Lifting of EU’s Russia Sanctions

Cyprus’ Parliament passed a resolution calling for the lifting of European Union sanctions against Russia.

The word came from Maria Pelekanou, Secretary of a parliamentary group of Progressive Party of Working People (AKEL), the Russian news site Sputnik said.

A total of 33 lawmakers voted for the resolution, while 17 abstained, Pelekanou told RIA Novosti. “Members of Democratic Rally party abstained,” she noted.

While the EU needs Russian energy and continues to work with Moscow over that, other relations sourced in 2014 over the Russian invasion of parts of Ukraine now controlled by Russian separatists.

Russia said it didn’t invade despite reports it had troops and military vehicles there during the conflict. Russia, in turn, imposed sanctions on EU countries, including the banning of imports.
