NOVO-OGARYOVO, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday he believes the masterminds of sanctions against Russia should think hard because the aftereffects of their move will be reciprocal.
“Of course we can tarnish each other to some degree but this tarnishing will be reciprocal and this is something they should think about,” he said.
“We believe our actions have reasonable grounds and the threats against Russia are counterproductive and harmful,” Putin said.
Russia is full of patience and readiness for cooperation even in the conditions of highly complicated relations with Kiev, he said, adding that he had instructed the government to consider ways of maintaining contacts with the incumbent Ukrainian authorities.
