MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Discussions about extending the anti-Russian sanctions against the background of the new terrorist threats seem foolish and immoral, the State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said Friday.
"Even now the West once again talks about extending the so-called sanctions against Russia. Against the background of current terrible tragedies it does not just look ridiculous, but frankly — crazy and stupid. At the very least it indicates a problem with the political morality and conscience," he said.
Naryshkin noted that the restrictions and prohibitions, in fact, multiply losses, while these measures "could serve as a common fight against terror."
"Who can explain — why in such a situation someone pushes extending the sanctions against Russian politicians and parliamentarians? What, nobody needs dialogue right now? Actually, all these questions have been rhetorical for a long time," Naryshkin said.
He expressed hope that "the fate of the world is not an empty world for the West, and our partners will come to their senses."
