During a visit to Moscow, Salvini said that the EU has applied sanctions against Russian Federation for "possible violations against Ukraine" without taking any measures due to the occupation by Turkey of Northern Cyprus "European countries" - since 1974, reports the Chronicle.info with reference for a New time.

Far-right Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini flew to Moscow on Wednesday to head an Italian business delegation at a trade meeting, launching a fresh attack on the European Union over its economic sanctions against Russian Federation.

The EU, meanwhile, asked the EIB to stop new financing operations in Russia and the EBRD suspended EU-Russia bilateral and regional cooperation programs. although its projects dealing exclusively with civil society were maintained. "It's clear that it makes no sense that they are in place".

Italy was the only European Union member state that openly resisted the new sanctions regime, according to a confidential European Union document seen by Reuters. Its calls for de-escalating tensions with Moscow have grown louder since a new, anti-establishment government took office in Italy in June.

Interior Minister of Italy and leader of the far-right party "League" Matteo Salvini said that Ukraine is fueling a religious war.
