Europe may lose €40 billion from unilateral anti-Russian sanctions this year and €50 billion in 2015, the minister noted. “Now we should assume that these figures may be probably specified in the direction of growth,” Lavrov noted.
Lavrov also said Russia will not make exception for several European companies that do not agree on Western anti-Russian sanctions.
“I believe that there cannot be any exception for concrete companies, you’d better encourage your governments to move in the right direction,” he said.
“I am aware that similar ideas are voiced in Italy,” he noted, adding that “In [north-eastern Italy] the Veneto region business people have put forward an initiative not to observe EU sanctions in this concrete region and in return they hope that measures which Russia had taken to protect its domestic food market will not be applied to their companies,” Lavrov said.
