MOSCOW, January 28. /TASS/. The attempts at exerting pressure on Russia by way of unilateral sanctions will not make Moscow abandon what in considers right and fair, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an article published in the January issue of the Serbian magazine Horizons. The article is posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry website on Wednesday.
"We’ll continue in the future to exert strenuous efforts for creating a favourable environment for the settlement of major problems the Ukrainian nation is facing," Lavrov said. "However, it is also necessary to bear in mind that the attempts at exerting pressure on Russia by unilateral sanctions, the application of which is illegal and condemned by decisions of the UN General Assembly, will not make us give up what we consider to be right and fair."
Attempts of Brussels to shift to Russia responsibility for Ukrainian tragedy undermine European stability, he added.
