 Sanctions against Russia meaningless, - French presidential candidate Fillon

French conservative presidential candidate Francois Fillon says EU's sanctions against Russia make no sense.

Censor.NET reports citing Reuters.

"I am convinced that the economic sanctions are totally ineffective," Fillon said.

He noted Russia had to make certain steps before sanctions could be lifted, adding that Ukraine was also not doing what it needed to do to ensure peace.

According to Fillon, another way for dialogue with the Russian Federation should be found.

"I do not want Trump to talk with Russia at our expense. It would be damaging for Europe if Trump went above our heads," he stressed.

Earlier, Fillon said that France should resume strong and frank relations with Russia and the United States.
