YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, October 25. /TASS/. Sanctions are unilateral and unlawful measures undermining trust to the countries that consider themselves global economic leaders and main prophets of globalisation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday.
"We do not ask to lift sanctions. We make no such request," Lavrov told Vesti v Subbotu programme on the Rossiya-1 TV channel.
"Sanctions are unilateral and unlawful measures that affect not only those who impose them but, generally speaking, undermine trust to the countries, first of all, the United States, which consider themselves leaders of the global economy and financial system and are main prophets of globalisation," the minister said.
"They shatter their own rules and put into doubt the reliability of their leading positions regarding the role of dollar and methods of management of the international monetary and financial system," Lavrov said.
