MOSCOW, March 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia reserves the right to give an adequate response to the sanctions imposed by the European Union against Russia, the Russian Foreign Ministry's spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Saturday.
He described the EU decision as "torn from reality" and called for "returning to the pragmatic ground of cooperation to meet interests of our countries."
"At the same time it is clear that the Russian side reserves the right to give an adequate response to the taken action," he noted.
The European Union on Friday, March 21, blacklisted 12 Russian officials to ban them from entering EU countries and freeze accounts if they have such in European banks.
