SIMFEROPOL, June 14. /TASS/. Crimea is prepared for extension of sanctions by the European Union as they expires in June, Crimean head Sergey Aksyonov told reporters on Tuesday.
"We were preparing… as we understood that sanctions will not be canceled in the nearest time, for the next 10 years at least. At least not sanctions against Crimea," Aksyonov said.
However, "the sanctions regime will be in some way eased" in the nearest future, he added. "European countries are already suffocating from these procedures that no one needs. However, the regime of not allowing foreign companies here will most likely remain in force for a long time," the Crimean head said.
"We were ready for the long term from the start, there is nothing unexpected for us here," he concluded.
