It is absurd and unnatural to fight radical Islamists together with Russia while simultaneously keeping in place the sanctions imposed on Moscow, the leader of Austria’s far-right Freedom Party said on Friday.

Prolonging Anti-Russia Sanctions After Tragedies 'Ridiculous, Wild, Silly'
The EU also needs tighter domestic and outside border controls, prisons for Greek terrorists, tougher action against suspected Islamic radicals. Heinz-Christian Strache said in comments, carried by the ORF television channel.

The Austrian Freedom Party (FPOe) wants Russia as a partner in the war on terror and demands the lifting of the sanctions imposed against it, Strache added.

The recent terrorist attacks in Paris clearly showed how vulnerable Europe is in the face of the terrorist threat, which stems from the Europeans’ ill-advised integration and migration policy.

“We need to get tough with Islamic State sympathizers, arrest those returning from Syria and keep them under lock and key in a prison the EU should build on a Greek island,” Heinz-Christian Strache emphasized.

He also said that the Freedom Party wanted partnership relations between the EU and Russia in the ongoing fight against the terrorist threat and lifting the sanctions imposed on Moscow.

“It is absurd and almost unnatural to keep the sanctions in place now that Russia and France are jointly fighting the radical Islamists in the region,” Strache said.

He also said that granting autonomy to Donbass held the key to a lasting settlement of the Ukrainian conflict.
