MOSCOW, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The threat of possible sanctions against Russia made by the US and EU will not make Russia change its decision in respect to Ukraine, Duma Vice-Speaker Vladimir Vasilyev, who is the leader of the United Russia faction in the State Duma, told journalists on Tuesday.
"The promised sanctions against Russia will neither influence the attitude of the Russian people to residents of Ukraine nor decisions taken by our country," Vasilyev stressed.
"Sincere human feelings such as compassion and a natural desire to help our compatriots and all the residents of Ukraine in trouble, is a historically developed trait of our people’s character. No money could ever buy it," Vasilyev said.
