MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Russia has no plans to introduce special conditions for specific EU countries which would imply abolishing of the Russian counter-sanctions, in particular lifting of the food embargo, presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters.
When asked whether President Vladimir Putin plans to discuss the possibility of lifting the food embargo with regard to Greek goods during his forthcoming visit to Greece, Ushakov said:
"There are no special conditions for specific countries, we do not foresee this."
The presidential aide stressed that Russia was not initiator of introduction of sanctions and that is why it does not discuss issues related to sanctions on its own initiative at international meetings.
"We reacted to them (Western sanctions -TASS) calmly by introducing our countermeasures, which is quite logical," Ushakov said.
Earlier on Thursday, the Kremlin press service reported that President Vladimir Putin will pay a visit to Greece on May 27-28.
