Jean-Claude Juncker proposes strengthening economic ties between the EU and Russia

In an official letter addressed to Vladimir Putin, Jean-Claude Juncker suggested that closer trade links are created between the 28 countries of the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union, where Russia plays a big role.

The letter written after the G20 summit in Turkey indicates the importance given by Jean-Claude Juncker in the maintenance of good relations between the EU and Moscow, which according to him "to [his] biggest regret was not able to develop over the past year. " He linked the offer to the progress of the implementation of a cease-fire in Ukraine.

The President of the European Commission also said it had mandated European officials to examine the options available to the European Union to move closer to the Eurasian Economic Union.

The Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said he was surprised by the letter, which does not reflect a common vision of EU Member States and makes no reference to EU sanctions against Russia "after its annexation Crimea "and" detribalisation "East of Ukraine. A spokesman for the Commission confirmed that Juncker had written to Putin after having a brief conversation with him at the G20 summit, but said he has not made new commitments in the letter.

The EU imposed sanctions against Russia in spring 2014 after the annexation of the Crimea to the Russian Federation and the beginning of the civil war in eastern Ukraine. The European Union thus intended to protest against the alleged Russian support to rebel militias who fought against the power of Kiev, from the coup of 22 February. Moscow has always denied being involved in this conflict and in turn imposed an embargo on agricultural products from not only the European Union but also the United States, Canada, Australia and Norway, making many lose Tens of millions of euros to European farmers.
