WASHINGTON, 3 Feb. Some European countries are looking for a way to escape from stringent sanctions against Russia, said Tuesday the Agency Sputnik U.S. Senator John McCain.

“I think, obviously, there has been much discussion among Europeans about the lifting of sanctions… Many countries are looking for “the exit,” said McCain.

Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine. At the end of July 2014, the EU and the USA from the point of sanctions against certain individuals and companies have moved to measures against entire sectors of the Russian economy.

In June 2015, in response to extension of sanctions, Russia has extended food embargo until 5 August 2016.
