Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, representative of the German Christian Democratic Union (CDU) Elmar Brok told DW, Censor.NET reports.
The deal would suggest giving up Ukraine in exchange for cutting Moscow's nuclear arsenal, the MEP said, commenting on U.S. President Donald Trump's proposal voiced in an interview with The Times prior to his inauguration.
Brok said it would be interesting to follow the debate on the matter in the U.S. Senate with the participation of Senators Corker and McCain known for their hard line on Russia.
He also noted that Russian sanctions were introduced to further the implementation of the Minsk deal and can be lifted only after all modalities are fulfilled.
