MOSCOW, September 16 /TASS/. Russia’s response to Ukraine’s new sanctions against Russian nationals, including State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin and other deputies, will be adequate, Leonid Slutsky, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for CIS affairs, Eurasian integration and links with compatriots residing abroad, said on Wednesday.
"I am sure that Russia will certainly react adequately as it is required in similar situations," he stressed.
He said that the Kiev government was reflecting all anti-Russian moves made by its western masters without realizing that it is damaging its country’s interests.
Slutsky does not think that the new Ukrainian sanctions against Russian deputies will have a negative impact on their professional work. They will not ruin their personal plans or have any other serious consequences, he added.
"I do hope that we will continue cooperation with constructively minded Ukrainian politicians and Rada deputies," Slutsky concluded.
