Deputy Prime Minister of Italy Matteo Salvini shared his perspective on European politics during an interview with RT in Cernobbio on Monday. Salvini was quite optimistic about the future of Europe stating: «There is a historical opportunity next May to finally change the balance in Europe, and to change the relations with countries that are beyond Europe as well.» «Sanctions against Russia... Еще do not make any economic, political, social and cultural sense,» he added. Deputy Prime Minister was critical of the European Union focus on economics and he assured that he would follow a hardline course towards Brussels regarding banking policy, agricultural policy, immigration. «There are some international missions that have brought tens of thousands of migrants to Italy alone, and I think citizens are paying my salary to control who is entering my country,» Salvini said commenting on immigration issue. In the end of the interview Salvini expressed his willingness to meet with US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in the nearest future.
