MOSCOW, July 6. /TASS/. Foreign partners are concerned about the aggressive behavior of Western politicians towards Russia, Vladimir Potanin, CEO and one of the owners of Norilsk Nickel said in an interview with TASS.
"It is hard to find words to express all my concerns. From higher borrowing costs for Norilsk Nickel (so far we can deal with it, but we did not plan higher costs), and out to the fact that I don’t like being disliked. The hysteria around Russia does not make me happier that is for sure,"- he said.
"I don’t like when they say bad things about Russia. Americans have a saying: my country may be wrong but this is my country. In other words - be off with you… I am a patriot and I am ready to defend my stance on any level. Although on the level of personal contacts nothing has changed for the worse. On the contrary - the foreigners I know for a long time, those I talk to out of record - they do not hide their embarrassment about the aggressive behavior of their politicians towards Russia," - Potanin said.
