I have consulted this link, but I am not sure of my sentence. Does it mean "I have a feeling that EU will lose U.S."? https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/258894/synonym-for-a-sense-of

"Against this backdrop, moves by U.S. lawmakers that could impact energy supplies in the region are unwelcome -- especially after three years of close coordination on sanctions. "There is a sense of loss of a partnership," Berzina said of attitudes in Europe."

The sentence could be improved. sense of loss of a partnership is rather clumsy writing.

Berzina said of attitudes in Europe is a clue. Berzina is describing attitudes in Europe, where there is "a sense of loss of a partnership."

In other words, where there is a sense (feeling, notion, idea, opinion, belief, attitude) that the US-European partnership (on the matter of sanctions) is dissolving.

...where there is a feeling that the partnership is failing or has already failed.
