MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Western sanctions will not change Russia’s independent course while Moscow will make conclusions from the West’s sanctions policy, Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Monday.
The deputy foreign minister made this statement at a concert for young diplomats devoted to the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two.
"This holiday is taking place in an uneasy international situation," the deputy foreign minister said.
"There are obvious attempts to falsify the history and we know well about these attempts. Russia has been confronted with the unprecedented desire to dictate its will and dictate the terms of international relations. We cannot accept this," Karasin said.
"Naturally, we’ll always struggle against this so that we can develop our internal and foreign policy independently," Karasin said.
"This has been manifested in the past few months as evidenced by developments in southeast Ukraine and the sanctions imposed by the West against our country. We’re keeping all this in mind and making corresponding conclusions," the deputy foreign minister said.
"But nothing can shake our firm will to move independently, using an independent course, he said.
