Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has commented on the possible extension of sanctions against Russia.
“But the European Union aware that we do not care?” – Rogozin wrote in his Twitter.
According to the Vice Prime Minister, against Russia it is impossible to use blackmail and threats. “Sanctions against our industry have already led to an effect opposite to expectations of European officials”, – said Rogozin.
Earlier, media reported that the EU plans to extend sanctions against Russia for another six months. It also concerns the interests of the business.
The EU imposed sanctions against the Russian Federation in 2014. After that Brussels has repeatedly expanded and extended the restrictions. As a result, only in 2015, the EU has suffered a loss of 17.6 billion euros for the application of sanctions.
К России нельзя применять шантаж и угрозы. Санкции против нашей промышленности уже привели к эффекту, обратному ожиданиям еврочиновников
