Europe should stop following US

Date: 31 July 2017

Introduction: Prof. dr. Tom Sauer argues that the EU should defend its own legitimate interests.(Euractiv)

American congress just voted in favour for a law that imposes additional economic sanctions on Russia. This includes coercion and fines if EU firms deal with Russian firms. Prof. Sauer argues that this is a bridge too far. The EU should defend its own interests more, and should contemplate improving relations with Russia.
