MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. Sanctions and attempts to economically stifle Russia are doomed to failure, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on the Rossiya 24 TV channel on Wednesday.
"Sanctions and attempts to break Russia economically are doomed to failure," the diplomat said. "We have been living in a new reality for a year already. It helps us to move along the path of import substitution, look for alternative cooperation options."
