MOSCOW, March 04, (ITAR-TASS). Moscow has explained to Washington on a number of occasions that unilateral sanctions against Russia do not match the format of civilized relations between countries, Alexander Lukashevich, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman said Tuesday.
“Unfortunately, this hasn’t produced a desired effect and that’s why we’ll have to respond (to the Americans - Itar-Tass) and the responses will not necessarily be symmetrical ones,” he said.
Threats to “punish” Russia for its principled position on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis that have been coming from Washington “are aggrieving not only because those who are so enthusiastically arguing on this subject simply lack elementary knowledge of history,” Lukashevich said.
“What is worse is that these American politicians and state figures seem to lack a sense of adequate appreciation of the real state of things in the swiftly changing multi-polar world of the 21st century,” he stressed.
