MOSCOW, June 5 /TASS/. Russia’s answer to Ukraine, if it imposes sanctions over Crimea’s reunification with Russia, will be adequate as prescribed by international practice, Leonid Slutsky, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Compatriots residing abroad, said on Friday.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said earlier on Friday that he had submitted a list of anti-Russian sanctions to the Ukrainian government over Crimea’s reunification with Russia. According to him, the Ukrainian sanctions list includes everybody who represented the country at the false (March 16) referendum. The restrictive measures will apply both to legal entities and individuals, Poroshenko said adding there were many natives of Crimea on the sanctions’ list.
"Naturally, Russia’s reply will be adequate and possibly symmetrical as prescribed by international practice, if the sanctions are really imposed," Slutsky told TASS.
