MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. Russia will work on tit-for-tat measures following the U.S., Canadian new sanctions, Alexander Lukashevich representing the Russian foreign ministry said on Saturday.
“The U.S. and Canada still cannot put up with the results of free declaration of will in Crimea and Sevastopol,” the diplomat said. “They have imposed new sanctions against Russian officials of different levels and extended bans for normal economic cooperation.”
“Growing are doubts about adequacy of initiators of initiatives of the kind. Well, even biggest supporters of sanctions may have discernments, though not quick: for example, it took the White House half a century to see the sanctions blockade of Cube brings no results. Well, then we shall be waiting, too.”
“For those still having illusions life in the world may continue only if directed by Washington and Ottawa, we would like to say once again: Crimea is a historic and integral part of Russia. Today, people in Crimea are together with the Russian people, who have never bent and would not bend to an outer pressure.”
“Our advice to Washington and Ottawa is to think about consequences from actions of the kind,” he said. “And we shall work on retaliatory measures.”.
