MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin said on Tuesday it is premature to talk about the future of Russian retaliatory sanctions against Western nations, which are due to expire in early August.

"Three months is a very long period. There's much less time before an EU summit in Brussels," the Kremlin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told journalists, when asked whether Russia planned to extend its retaliatory ban on Western food products after it expires.

Russia banned most Western food imports of meat, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetables in retaliation to Western sanctions against Moscow over events in eastern Ukraine.

The EU countries are scheduled to discuss extending their sanctions at the June summit in Brussels.
