MOSCOW, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia does not rule out some mirrored measures, if the United States and the European Union impose sanctions against the country, Deputy Minister of Economic Development Alexei Likhachev told reporters on Thursday.
Russia is prepared to tackle any turn of events in what concerns Western sanctions, he said.
“We don’t rule sanctions out and we’re prepared to see any turn of events and to draft various options of retaliatory measures, but still we hope these will be specified, personified political sanctions rather than a broad spectrum of trade and economic decision,” Likhachev said.
“We’ll be acting in a mirror-like manner and our retaliatory sanctions will be symmetrical,” he said.
