Russia comments on UN sanctions’ prolongation
Moscow deeply regrets about the UN’s decision of the anti-Russian sanctions’ prolongation, as Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Alexey Meshkov claimed. He has also underlined that everybody has come to a conclusion that such actions are counterproductive, RIA Novosti informs.
It stands to remind that today, June 28, the European Council has made an official decision about prolongation of the existing sanctions for six months more.
The diplomat has advised that the sanctions fail to find a solution to any issues between Russia and Europe. Moreover, experts have proved many times that the sanctions and counter measures taken by our country do harm the economics of the European countries, first of all.
In the opinion of Alexey Meshkov, the aggressive minority has won again in the UN.
Head of the international Affairs Committee at the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachyov has referred to this decision as a mistake of the past, which would lead us nowhere. The senator has added that the decision of the UN is senseless and is absolutely disconnected with reality.
