MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. Russia will not leave Washington’s hostile actions without response, the United States will be fully to blame for the consequences, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday in connection with the signing by US President Barack Obama of the Ukraine Freedom Support Act.
“We will apparently be getting rid of this heritage for a long time. The American side is fully to blame for the consequences,” Lukashevich said.
“We do not leave hostile actions on the part of Washington without response. We will be making decisions on possible response measures depending on how the United States will use the new law in practice,” he said.
“The Russian side is ready for dialogue and cooperation, but only on principles of equality, real account for our interests. Attempts to pressure us are anyway doomed to fail,” Lukashevich said.
