MOSCOW, March 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia cannot be punished, but right relations can be built with it, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev noted on his page in the social networks on Friday.
He recalled the events of August 2008 when Western countries were sharply criticizing Russian troops entering South Ossetia. “I excellently remember August 2008 when I had to make the decision on using Russian forces on the territory of a foreign state and then recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia. These were difficult decisions. The subsequent developments showed that there was no other way,” the premier noted.
Medvedev recalled that the international community then also had to discuss the questions as to how to build relations with Russia. “It should be acknowledged that our partners, albeit with difficulty, then found a balanced line of conduct regarding Russia.

He expressed the hope that “wisdom will prevail this time, too.
