The former French leader called for lifting anti-Russia sanctions.

ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — EU sanctions against Russia should be lifted, but it should be up to Moscow to take the first step, France's former President Nicolas Sarkozy said Thursday.

"I am among those who believe that it is necessary to remove the sanctions, we have enough problems as it is. We cannot allow ourselves to suffer, and the strongest side should reach out first," Sarkozy said, adding that this would be the Russian leadership.
