MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Serious international issues are impossible to solve without Russia, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told TASS on Wednesday ahead of the World Congress of Compatriots.
"Talking about the economic sphere, our opponents are trying to spread lies about the collapse of the Russian economy because of Western sanctions. I am not going to make favorable assessments but despite difficulties, it turned out that Russia has more allies and reliable partners that Washington thought," Karasin said.
"Sanctions have to a certain extent served as a mobilizing factor for our economy, breathed a new life into innovations spheres, gave a powerful impetus to import substitution. Don't count your chickens before they hatch. Ideologists of the ‘great anti-Russian game’ should not forget about that," he stressed.
"It is becoming obvious that no matter what international issue we take, it is impossible to solve it without Russia," he concluded.
