MOSCOW, May 28. /TASS/. Ukraine’s new sanctions list will have no influence on activities of the Russian media but it has manifested Kiev’s current set of mind eager to profane politics, First Deputy Chairman of Russian Federation Council’s Defense and Security Committee Frants Klintsevich told reporters on Saturday.
On May 27, Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko signed a decree imposing personal sanctions on the senior management of Russian key media teams, with 17 surnames put on the list.
"Definitely, everyone, including people in Ukraine, realize that it will not affect the work of Russian media and so in fact, its analysis is senseless," Klintsevich said, adding that the new sanctions list "demonstrates the set of mind that has been determining Kiev’s steps since the state coup."
"To be short, profanation of politics is implied here," the lawmaker said, noting "this approach dominates in all issues, in particular in settlement of the Donbass crisis."
"The country that prefers ceremonial dances to politics is hard to deal with," he said in conclusion.
