    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia welcomes the European Union's decision to lift sanctions against President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

    "This step once again shows the utmost meaninglessness of sanctions, the pointlessness of continuing sanctions dialogue. Of course, we consider this to be very positive," Peskov told reporters.
