VIENNA, May 17. /TASS/. Moscow believes that the introduction of unilateral sanctions against Libya and Yemen is a big mistake, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday, adding that sanctions really worsen the humanitarian situation of civilians.
"The sanctions that were introduced as a so-called political lever, really worsen the humanitarian situation of civilians," the minister said. "And, by the way, unilateral sanctions in a situation in which something goes wrong with the establishment of a political dialogue, are already being introduced against separate persons in Yemen and in Libya. We believe it is a big mistake, undermining the efforts aimed at ensuring national conciliation - both in Syria an in any other internal conflict situation," Lavrov said.
